Final Instructions
Welcome to the Primrose Trophy Rally.
Thank you for your entry. We look forward to seeing you on 25th April.
We are grateful to Truckhaven for allowing us to use their premises for the Start and Finish of this event
Please remember that Truckhavens real business is overnight accommodation for wagon drivers.
It is not normally a Rally venue. Wagon Drivers will be occupying the site and will probably be asleep in their cabs.
We would like to use this venue again so please don’t wake them up. Please be quiet (both at the Start & Finish)
Trailers should be unloaded before Noise (& before going under the barrier : if you go under the barrier and it lifts, it generates a parking ticket which
you will need to pay for)

General notes:
Many thanks for marshalling on the Primrose Trophy Navigation Rally, without your assistance this rally would not exist.
In order to ensure the smooth running of the rally and to minimise confusion with results, please read and understand these instructions. If they aren’t clear then please ask, do not
assume that the manner in which the Primrose Trophy rally runs it’s controls is the same as your club runs them. IF YOU ARE NOT SURE - ASK
In all cases please park well out of the way of the rally cars and minimise obstruction to the road.
MTC (Main Time Control)
TC (Time Control),
Timing will be to the whole minute. except TC4 which is timed to the second
Timing will be when the competitor’s time card is presented to the marshal (H64 & 76) Competitors may enter the control up to 59s before their due time and wait for their time. i.e.
the competitor requires 23:05, he enters the control on 23:04. He presents his timecard , you then fill in the timecard and allow him to leave the control at 23.05.
If he presents the timecard at 23:03:59 and asks for 23:05 he is early and must take 23:04 (the time at which the time card was presented)
At these controls, sign for all the code boards filled in with pen prior to your control (sample timecard provided)
If there are code boards that have not been filled in or filled in by pencil (all competitors have been instructed to fill in code boards using a pen), cross these
through such that they cannot be filled in later – do not sign against these. Only sign for Boards that you have been asked to sign for (as per Control Location map)
if previous boards have not been signed for : put a cross in that signature box
IRC (Intermediate Regularity Control)
At IRCs the timing can be to the whole minute and the procedure is as at a normal time control (TC), however, at the following IRCs & ERs the timing is to the second and marshals
need to fill in the appropriate column on the Time Card
RC (Route Check)
When the cars stop at your control, sign the Code Board card for your Control and for Any Code Boards between yourself and the previous time control in the indicated box and allow
them to pass on.
Please bring to the Finish Your Check Sheet, Clock and any Boards
