Every minute of arrival before “0” car (ideal time for participants) is punishable by 6 penalty points, but no more than 3 minutes of earlier arrival.
Therefore, it is possible to “earn” a maximum of 18 penalty points at each stage.
Every minute of delay is 1 penalty point, but not more than 15 minutes delay.
Therefore, it is possible to “earn” a maximum of 15 penalty points at each stage.
In the morning of each race, the starting order is drawn between the participants for the whole day. Teams that achieved the same time at the stage will be ranked according to the starting order, the team that started earlier will get higher-ranking in the protocol because the team behind has the theoretical opportunity to identify the time of the team that started in front.
