Standard Safety Procedures:
  1. There will be no checkpoints on high-speed roads (50 mph +).
  2. When you encounter a checkpoint along the rallye course, pull OFF THE ROAD if possible, on the right side to allow traffic to pass. NEVER stop alongside a checkpoint vehicle -- not even briefly to let off passengers.
  3. After completing checkpoint procedure, drive your car beyond the checkpoint area to allow other rallyists to park as close to the checkpoint as you did.
  4. If you have car trouble along the rally course, attach a white cloth or paper to your door handle and raise your hood. If you see another rallyist displaying this signal, stop and offer them assistance.

Standard Class Definitions:

* BEGINNER -- Having never won a trophy of any kind based on performance on a gimmick rallye. {Excluding non-performance trophies such as Last Place and Best Costume.} Beginners are eligible for all trophies.

* NOVICE -- Having won at least 1 gimmick rallye trophy, but less than 2 Overall trophies. 

Novices are eligible for Novice and Overall trophies.

* MASTER -- Having won 2 or more Overall trophies (based on Top 10% Overall). Masters are eligible only for Overall trophies.

* GRANDMASTER -- Having won 2 or more 1st Overall trophies within the same rallye season on gimmick rallyes in competition with at least 1 Grandmaster, OR anyone who chooses to declare himself a Grandmaster. Grandmasters are eligible only for the 1st Overall trophy.

Trophies won on all gimmick rallyes count toward the totals, not just those won on this Rallye Team's events.
