Trials Rules & Regs

 SETTING OUT/COC

Sections to be driven when setting out trials, at least from gate 15-5. Therefore a driven line is established. COC's vehicle, ONLY vehicle to be used when setting up trials. If it is not possible to drive a section whilst setting out the first vehicle on the section has the option to change one gate on the course up to where they stopped.
If you set gates from 10-15 then you must be sure there are no rtv or inter competing. (If unsure set 15-1)
Coc must make sure all people are off the course and have a nominated tow vehicle. If a person is in the way of a driver and has to stop, the driver may go back 20 feet to restart on conformation from the coc.
If a cane or cane top is hit that is the score you will be given on that section.
The driven line is when you proceed in an orderly fashion through the course marked by the canes without deviating from the driven route. What this means is that there is an imaginary route directly between the canes that you should follow, no scenic country drives are permitted between two gates unless the course is set that way. You are allowed within a meter of the original marks from the first driver on the section which sets the driven line. You must stick to the driven line (RTV and Intermediate are given a wider range)
