>Think I'll be able to use a rental for recce ?

You should be safe planning on using a rental. All of the setup runs have been done in stock road cars with no skid plate, usually on all-season tires. Back in 2002, when the logging company graded one stage a few days before the rally, it was a bit of a tire-slicer, but since then we have always managed to convince them to delay grading until after the rally.

If it gets very wet, the road surface can turn to baby poo, which makes a special chanllenge for 1wd rental cars on all-seasons.

RECCE AM - RACE PM ?

Ahhhhhhhh ....

...don't know about the rest of you, but I kinda
have to spend A BIT of time re-writing my notes
after recce ...


Recce should be one day, followed by an evening of "rest"
followed by racing the next day.
(just like Camaros, we all have opinions)

RE: RECCE AM - RACE PM ?

> I guess with experience it might get easier.

Nope ... at least not in my case.

Sorry Warwick, I guess I should clarify ... for any rally that we've pacenoted and then run as a rally for a second time, I obviously spend WAYYYYY less time working on my books than any other situation.

First time pacenoting an event is a LOT of work for me and even any time I run a Jemba/organizer-supplied-notes event, I still put in several hours getting the notes (and route book) ready.

So yes, it definitely gets easier if you run the same pacenoted rallies over and over and there aren't too many stage changes ... but every Rally America event we run, it's just as much book work for me as it always has been.

RE: RECCE AM - RACE PM ?
