What should I check before the event begins? Ensure the following:

  • Make sure your navigator lights work
  • Check the Rally Computer:
    • Make sure the odo works - run the odo check
    • Make sure you have the correct factor - run the odo check
    • Write the old correction factor on a piece of duct tape on the computer so you can revert to it if a new factor is bad
  • Make sure you have pens, highlighters, watches, flashlights, rulebook, schedule, supps, notepad
  • Bring some clear plastic baggies - you will need them to:
    • Keep stuff dry
    • Hold stuff but see what's in there
    • Use as a barf bag
  • Make sure the intercom works with BOTH helmets
  • Make sure you have spare batteries if the intercom requires them
  • Make sure the belts fit; adjust them NOW so you are not rushed later
  • Make sure you have drivers license and some spare cash with you
  • Bring your cell phone with you - coverage occurs in the strangest places
  • Tire pressure guage
  • Determine "who will do what" when you have to change a tire on a stage - and practice it
  • In case you have an "off":
    • Know where the tools are at (such as jack, spinner, wrench, etc.)
    • Check where the triangles are at
    • Check where the tow rope is at
    • Check where the First Aid kit is at
    • Check where the Spill Response Kit is at
  • In case of an extended "off", make sure you have:
    • water
    • snacks
    • Appropriate clothing: a hat, warm clothes, poncho
    • mosquito repellent, suntan lotion
  • Determine at which service you will need to re-fuel
  • Determine when you need to attach the rally lights (keep in mind delays, offs, etc.)
  • Seems minor, but determine HOW you will turn pages during the event
    • Make sure you don't turn 2 pages instead of 1
    • Make pages QUICK to turn (fold over the corner?)
  • ...
