The RoadRally Rules (RRRs) have often been criticized as too long and too complicated, and a deterrent to local rallyists “graduating” to National and Divisional events.
The RoadRally Board (RRB) is now introducing the Abridged RoadRally Rules in an attempt to address those concerns. The vast majority of the credit for the creation of this document goes to Bruce Gezon who originated the concept and did most of the “heavy lifting” in removing sections he felt were unnecessary. Bruce’s original concept was to only include those items needed while actually running a rally. The RRB did expand that concept somewhat. One RRB member expressed the opinion that an additional purpose of the document should be to help “the first time organizer put on a simple event without spending hours delving into the details of the (unabridged) RRRs.” and a few items were added to Bruce’s original version.
A few important things to note about the Abridged RRRs:
The RRB feels that reading the shortened version of the rules will be easier for entrants “newer” to national/divisional events, since the amount of material they need to read and understand is reduced. This document will be subject to annual rule change proposals just as the unabridged RRRs are. What should be added? What should be removed? The RRB welcomes your thoughts.
