Schedule R 1(a)

Standard Road Book for all Rallies: All road books shall comply with the layout shown in the sample pages following (alternatively the FIA standard may be applied), and with the following requirements:
A:
Requirements:
1.
Road books must read from top to bottom.
2.
Road books shall be bound by means of a plastic or metal spiral allowing an opening of 360°, and if possible so that competitors can insert additional pages. The binding shall be strong enough to resist rough handling.
3.
The following information must be included in the road book:
3.1
At the front of the road book:

(1)
Accident procedure.
(2)
Emergency telephone numbers. These emergency numbers shall be repeated in bold type on the inside back cover or below the Red Cross.
(3)
An explanation of the signs and abbreviations used.
(4)
An itinerary and/or time/distance schedule.
3.2
At the back of the road book:

(1)
“Incident Report” sheets.
(2)
“Inquiry” sheets.
(3)
A competitor “Notification of Withdrawal from Rally” form.
(4)
A red “SOS” on the inside back cover (see Schedule R6).
(5)
A green “OK” on the outside back cover (see Schedule R7).
(6)
For Tarmac Rallies and Targa events a Red and Yellow striped “Oil Warning” sign is to be printed on the page immediately preceding the inside back cover of all A4 size Road Books. Where a Road Book is of a smaller size, a fold out or additional sign must be provided (see Schedule R8).
4.
A reference for calibrating the distance on the tripmeter must be given.
5.
The following must appear at the top or bottom of each page:

(1)
The number of the road section (a road section being between two(2) time controls),
(2)
The time allowed,
(3)
The distance and the passage controls where used.
6.
Each page will be numbered, the numbering being progressive in the same volume.
7.
Each piece of information will be numbered and separated from the next by a horizontal stroke. (The number will revert to 0 at each time control).
8.
Closely related information (distance under 200m) will not be separated.
9.
Any direction, which cannot be defined on the route, will be given in brackets.
10.
For each time control, control at the start or finish of a special stage, and passage control, the standardised signs are to be reproduced, and the locations of these controls are to be indicated precisely.
11.
The reproduced signs must have their position indicated on the drawing of the route (Tulip diagram).
12.
The main signs showing the changes of direction and existing on the route must be printed in boxes, and in the case of a change of direction, all the signs on the route must have the arrow pointing in the true direction.
13.
The locations of the various controls must be indicated exactly.
14.
Each road section will begin on a fresh page.
15.
Special stages should be made to stand out from the rest of the text (with, for example, a frame or the use of a different colour).
Note: competitor preference is for the Special Stages to be printed on white paper (easier to see the effects of a highlighter on and better to read at night) and Touring Stages to be on coloured paper.
16.
On each drawing, i.e. tulip diagram, the starting point of the drawing will be situated at the bottom and the thickness of the lines will be proportional to the widths of the roads represented.
17.
The signs which are reproduced and which do not correspond to the route to be followed but which act as reference points should be crossed out.
18.
The spots requiring particular attention must be indicated by 1, 2 or 3 exclamation marks.
19.
Indicate surface changes (from tarmac to dirt, from dirt to tarmac).
20.
Indicate No Servicing areas with a Thick shaded line to the left of the central vertical line.
21.
Each page must have sufficient space for competitors to insert their own comments.
22.
The maximum authorised number of drawings per page is 5.
23.
The information must be legible (taking into account the fact that it must be read at night in a moving car).
24.
In the road book, the safety points must be indicated by the approved sign.
Recommendations:
1.
Give the average speed of the road sections.
2.
For the special stages, give the fastest time set during the previous rally.
3.
Put in easily discernible reference points (e.g. town entry signs and speed restriction signs).
