2 in 1 is what I think Dan....the scandi for newbies that want to try a rally and have a little taste of the atmosphere .....
We are indeed running the two events parallel to each other, but the 24h IBA Scandinavian Rally is in no way just limited to newbies.
Some experienced riders are more comfortable with the more dense 24h format, and some others just might not be able to spare the number of days needed for the multiday event.
So, we expect a good mix of rookies, newbies and experienced riders in the IBA Scandinavian Rally - but the two rallies are two different entities, and are held parallel just to boost our efficiency.
This is the shedule for us who arranges the two rallies:
Wednesday August 8th pm
Check-in + Riders meeting IBA European Tour 72h
Thursday 9th Morning
Start IBA European Tour 72h
Thursday 9th pm
Check-in + Riders meeting IBA Scandinavian Rally 24h
Friday 10th Morning
Start IBA Scandinavian Rally 24h
Saturday 11th Morning
Finish IBA Scandinavian Rally 24h
Saturday 11th am + pm
Scoring + prize giving ceremony IBA Scandinavian Rally 24h
Sunday 12th Morning
Finish IBA European Tour 72h
Sunday 12th am + pm
Scoring + prize giving ceremony IBA European Tour 72h
...and no, you can not register and participate in the two events simultaneously.
Yes, we have had the question already. Like less than three hours after the 24h rally was announced...
