4.1.2.Media settings

On this tab you can enter digital media and documents for your rally.

Upload rally shield
After completing the rally a competitor receives an email message with an overview of their control card. Basically all the controls that are also seen on the smartphone. At the top of the email there is room to place your rally’s rally sign.

The digital rally sign has the following dimensions: 320 x 199 pixels.

The digital rally sign is a .png file. See the following example.

Upload rally icon
In the Rallycheck app a competitor can select a rally.  The app shows the name of the rally preceded by a logo of the rally.

After completing the rally a competitor can receive a link tot a personalized explanation document.

This option is deprecated. See the tab “File Management” for the current options.

The “Upload explanation document” option is only visible as long as an “old style” document is present.
New documents cannot be uploaded here.

If an old document is listed here, the link tot the document will be sent to the participant after each finished stage of a rally. This behavior is implemented for downward compatibility of the explanation document. As soon as you have updated the explanation documents using the “File Management” option, the “old style” explanation document will no longer be sent.

Please inform us when you have updated the explanation documents so we can remove the old documents from the servers.

4.1.4.Rally Classes

Rallycheck Edit Rally - Classes tab

On the Classes tab you can define the different Classes in which Participants can enter the rally.

A rally must have at least one Class, the default Class when creating a new rally is “Touring”.

An organizer can activate the Tripmaster function in the Rallycheck app. This can be done per Class. In the example above, Touring is allowed use of the GPS Tripmaster in the Rallycheck app, but the Sporting and Expert Classes are not able to use this feature of the app.

The default value for the Tripmaster is OFF.

Last updated on 12 June 2020

4.1.5.Legs & Stages

A rally must have at least one Leg and one Stage. We have noticed that the terms “Leg” and “Stage” are often used with rallies, but are not always applied the same way. In order to be sure how to use Legs and Stages we have added our definition for use within the Rallycheck application.

Rally start and end date/time

A rally may have an optional starting date/time and an optional ending date/time.
We advise all rallies that have an actual starting date, to enter this in Rallycheck.
The rally usually has a fixed date with an organisation and a lot of competitors that drive the rally at the same time.

Rallies that do not have a fixed date are usually configured so that Participants can drive the rally at their own convenience. This type of rally is available all year round and can be driven at will. Usually this is done on an individual basis or in small groups of participants.
Rallies without a fixed date are an exception.

Definition of a rally Leg

A rally Leg consists of a name. Usually there is one leg per day.
This is not mandatory. You may define more legs per day.

A rally Leg must have at least one stage.

Definition of a rally Stage

A rally Stage consists of a name and an optional starting and ending date and time. Also a rally stage is linked to (at least) one or more Classes. A rally stage is also linked to one (and only one) Route Control Card per Class.

Typical configuration of a one day rally with two classes

The typical configuration of a one day rally with two classes could be:

Leg 1 (Saturday):

  • Morning stage (Sporting and Touring classes)
  • Afternoon stage (Sporting and Touring classes)

 

Example of a two day rally with 3 Classes:

Rallycheck Edit Rally - Legs and Stages tab

 

This Rally is on a Saturday and Sunday, in this image only Saturday is shown. You can see the following information:

  1. The start and finish date and time of the rally. The rally can only be selected in the Rallycheck app during this timeframe.
  2. The Leg named Saturday
  3. The Stage named Morning with:
    1. All three Classes defined for the morning stage. Each class has a Starting date time defined. This is the Base date and time time that is used for calculation of starting times of participants.
    2. Only two Classes defined for the Afternoon Stage.

When configuring your rally you can decide exactly how you want it designed with regard to Legs and Stages.

4.1.6.Penalty points settings

On this tab you can define the penalty points for your rally.

The penalty points are explained as follows.

Route controls
Missed controls. This is the number of penalty points received if you have missed a passage control or have saved a “false” control.
Default value: 100 points per control.

Regularities
Too early. This is the number of penalty points received when encountering a time control before the Norm Regularity Time (NRT).
default value: 1 point per second.

Too late. This is the number of penalty points received when encountering a time control after the Norm Regularity Time (NRT).
default value: 1 point per second.

Maximum. This is the maximum number of penalty points received per regularity.

default value: 10 points per minute.

Too late. This is the number of penalty points received when encountering a time control after the Norm Passage Time (NPT).
default value: 10 points per minute.

Maximum. This is the maximum number of penalty points received per missed Time Control.

TC-IN. This is the number of minutes a participant can check in early per TC-IN (of TC-FINISH) without receiving a penalty. This is usually user to regroup the field and not have participants waiting for their IPT before a lunch or Finish location.
default value: 15 minutes early without penalty.

Time Window Control. A TWC can be used to allow a participant to arrive late at a Time Control, without penalty. Time Window Controls are defined, but not yet implemented in the Rallycheck system.
default value: 30 minutes late without penalty.

Making up lost time
This can be set if participants are allowed to make up lost time when checking into a TC.

TC. The number of minutes a participant can make up per TC without receiving a penalty, if “making up lost time” is set.
default value: 10 minutes per TC.

Lap Consistency test
Too early. This is the number of penalty points received when reaching a LC control before the expected time.

Too late. This is the number of penalty points received when reaching a LC control after the expected time.

Maximum. This is the maximum number of penalty points received per LC test.

Speed test bogey time
Too early. This is the number of penalty points received when finishing a Speed test before the Bogey time (usually 0).

Too late. This is the number of penalty points received when finishing a Speed test after the Bogey time.

Extra. This is the number of penalty points received when making an error on the speed test circuit. This value must be entered by a marshal.

4.1.7.Results Calculation

With these options you can select the type of results calculation for your rally.

The selection of the results calculation is dependant on your account privileges. If you cannot edit this field,  please let us know and we will set the correct value for you.

Rallycheck - Results calculation tab

The option “Results immediately visible for users” enables you to enable or disable the participants results of the rally. When set to Yes the participant will see exactly which controls were missed and the number of penalty points received. When set to “No” the participant will not see the results. Only the rally organizer can see the results in the Rallycheck Portal.

Last updated on 9 June 2020

4.2.Edit Route

This is the page where you will define all your route controls.

The page is divided into two sections. On the left side of the screen is the Mother card. On the right side of the screen is the road map.

Mother Route Control Card
The Mother Route Control Card (or Mother Card) is the card where all route controls are listed in the order in which they are encountered when driving the rally.

Road Map
The Road Map shows the position of all the controls on the map.

There is a big difference between the Road Map and the Mother Card. On the Road Map all controls are listed only once! On the Mother Card a control can be listed multiple times. For example, when driving the rally, it is possible to pass a control, lets say control B, and saving it in the Rallycheck app. Later, you could, depending on the route, pass B again and save this in the Rallycheck app.

The B is of course the same actual control on the map and has the same GPS position. The control B will however be listed twice on the Mother Card.

It is very important to have a good understanding of the subtle difference between the Road Map and the Mother Card. This is important as some attributes of a route control are linked to it’s GPS position, and some attributes are linked to it’s Mother Card instance.

Buttons
There are a number of buttons at the top of the page. The function of these buttons are explained below.

Update route
When clicking on Update route your changes will be saved. Use this button often as not to lose information!

Rallycheck Edit Route - Update route

Download GPX
This option can be used to download the waypoints to a file. You can select the Leg, Stage and Class to download.  The GPX download, downloads the waypoints, not the Mother Card.

Upload GPX
This option can be used if you ave all the Waypoints for the controls in another map program. You can export the information from your other map system to GPX format. Then upload the GPX file to the Rallycheck portal.

Print Mother Card
With this function you can print the Mother Card or export it as a PDF document.

4.2.1.Route Control Options

When creating or updating a Control you will see the following pop-up screen:

Route Control Options

Route Control Options

The Route Control Options screen consists of three tabs. The first tab is the “Way point”. The second tab is the “Mother card” and the third tab is the “Bearing”.

The Way point settings refers to settings of the way point on the road map.  The information entered here will be the same each time a participant passes the Control during the rally.

The Mother card settings refers to the Control on the mother card. This information is serate to the actual waypoint. This information is not used in the Rallycheck app. This information can be used when calculating results. If the mother card has the same control more than once, it is possible to manage these settings per instance on the mother card.

The Bearing settings also refer to the way point on the road map.  The information entered here will be the same each time a participant passes the Control during the rally.

The Route control options are described below.

Last updated on 10 February 2020

4.2.1.1.Letter

The Letter field can be used to enter the letter of the control. This is usually 1 character long. It is possible to enter more than one letter. The Letter field will be scaled down in the Rallycheck app if it is too long. This may make it difficult to read on some phones if it is too long.

Best Practice:
We advise organisers to keep this field as short as possible! No more than 3 or 4 characters. The maximum is set to 8 characters.
Here are some examples:

A: normal passage control

T1: time control 1
or
TC1: time control 1

Last updated on 19 October 2020

4.2.1.2.RcType

There are eight RcTypes. They are listed below.

START
The Start control of the rally. When this control is encountered is acts as the start of a new stage of the rally.

TC-START
The Start control of a rally when Participants are started at a pre scheduled time. The TC-START is visible in the Rallycheck app a default 3 minutes prior to the scheduled start time. The TC-START control is visible in the app for a default 60 minutes after the scheduled starting time.

RC
A standard passage control.

TC
A Time control. The Time control shows the running time on the screen of the Rallycheck app. The competitor can decide at what time is saves the control by clicking save.

TC-IN
A Time control with the option to check in early. The Time control shows the running time on the screen of the Rallycheck app. The competitor can decide at what time is saves the control by clicking save. With this type of TC it is usually allowed to check in early without penalty. The amount of time that a participant can check in early without penalty, is configured per rally. TC-IN does not act as a Finish of the stage.

TC-FINISH
A Time control combined with the Finish of a stage of the rally. Time control shows the running time on the screen of the Rallycheck app. The competitor can decide at what time is saves the control and Finishes the stage by clicking save. With this TC it is usually allowed to check in early without penalty.  The amount of time that a participant can check in early without penalty, is configured per rally. TC-FINISH acts as a Finish of the stage.

FINISH
The Finish control of a stage of the rally. The Finish control stays on screen in the Rallycheck app and the participants must click on the save button to Finish the stage.

LC
A “Lap Consistency” control. This control is used when running a lap consistency test on a, usually closed off, route. A minimum of tree LC controls are needed for a lap consistency test.

Best Practice:

A rally stage must have one START or TC-START control. This is the first control.
A rally stage must have one FINISH or TC-FINISH control. This is the last control.

 

Last updated on 19 October 2020

4.2.1.3.Proximity

The Proximity is a value in meters and is set to a default of 45. It describes the geofencing radius around a route control.

When a participant is with the proximity of the control, the Rallycheck app will detect the control and, inost cases, show the control on the screen.

Best Practice:
Try to use the default value.

Stay away from low proximity values. Values smaller than 20 meters are not advised.

Last updated on 3 January 2020

4.2.1.4.Savetime

With the Savetime options you can manage the time, in seconds, that the control is visible on the Rallycheck screen.
The default value is usually 60 seconds. 
The default value for controls also using the AutoSave option is 15 seconds.

Best Practice:
Try to keep the value constant for the whole rally. We have experimented a lot with this value and 60 seconds seems to work well. This value, in combination with the 15 seconds value when using AutoSave is advised.

Last updated on 3 January 2020

4.2.1.5.DirectSave

When the DirectSave option is set to ON, the Rallycheck app will always save the RC or START control in the app. The participant does not have the choice to save or cancel the control. When set to ON, de Savetime is automatically defaulted to 15 seconds. The Savetime can be changed.

DirectSave does not have impact on the TC or FINISH controls. These controls must always be saved by the participant.

The default value is OFF.

Best Practice:
Use this option for speed controls or “hidden” time controls. 

Last updated on 3 January 2020

4.2.1.6.ShowSpeed

The ShowSpeed option is an informational feature. When this option is set, the Rallycheck app will show the speed of the participant when it reaches the control. The speed is shown on the screen with control, but also on the screen with all the controls. It is also shown on the Route Control Card which the participant receives per email and also on the route Control Card that the rally organisation receives.

Best Practice:
Use this option in conjunction with DirectSave for speed controls.

Last updated on 3 January 2020

4.2.1.7.ShowTime

The ShowTime option is an informational feature. When this option is set, the Rallycheck app will show the time of the participant when it reaches the RC, TC, START or FINISH control. The time is shown on the screen with the control, but also on the screen with all the controls. It is also shown on the Route Control Card which the participant receives per email and also on the Route Control Card that the rally organisation receives.

For a TC control, the ShowTime option will show the time at which the participant saved the TC.

Best Practice:
Use this option in conjunction with a TC to show the time a which the participant has checked in a the TC.

Use this option for “hidden” or “secret” time controls during the rally or during a regularity section of the rally.

 

Last updated on 28 January 2020

4.2.1.8.Instruction

The Instruction field can be used to show participants a (short) instruction when reaching the control. This can be any information and is free text. 

Best Practice:
Keep this informational field as short as possible. Remember that the participants will read this text on the phone and that the information is scaled to fit one line of the phone. Not all participants have large phones! The smaller the phone the smaller the text and the more difficult to read.

Last updated on 3 January 2020

4.2.1.9.Situation explanation

This free format text field can be used to describe the situation of the control in the rally. It is only used in the results module when a participant has missed a control (or has saved a false control). With the explanation, a participant is able to understand the situation and the organiser has an opportunity to inform the participant of the route that should have been taken.

Last updated on 3 January 2020

4.2.1.10.Norm Passage Time

The Norm Passage Time is located on the “Mother card” tab.

The Norm Passage Time (NPT) is used to define the passage time of  controls. It is usually the time at which the first competitor should pass a time control (TC).

The time could (for example) be 8:01, and defines the start time of the first participants.

It has no function in the app. The Rallycheck app does not know the norm times for the participants. It is the responsibility of the participants to arrive at a TC at the correct time.

The NPT can be used for computing  a time penalty in the results module.

Last updated on 21 October 2020

4.2.1.11.Norm Regularity Time

The Norm Regularity Time (NRT) is used to define the passage time of  controls during a regularity. It is usually the time at which the first competitor should pass a hidden time control (GTC).

Best Practice:
This is a short example of a possible use of the NRT.

At the start of the regularity
Letter: R
DirectSave: ON
ShowTime: ON
Instruction: Start REG
NRT: 0:00

The first time control in the regularity:
Letter: G
DirectSave: ON
ShowTime: ON
Instruction: GTC
NRT: 7:15

The Norm Regularity Time at the first time control in a regularity should be 7 minutes and 15 seconds.
Using DirectSave and ShowTime ensures that a participant’s time is registered automatically and the the registered time is visible on screen.

The results calculation module is responsible for determining a time penalty using the times at control R, G and the corresponding NRT times.

In this example the start of the regularity timing is a “rolling start”.

Last updated on 3 January 2020

4.2.1.12.Norm Speed

The Norm Speed (NS) is used to define the norm or maximum speed at a control. It is usually set to the value of the maximum allowed speed and is used for speed controls.

The Norm Speed could (for example) be 35, and defines the (maximum) speed that the participant should not exceed. The value can be used for Kilometers or Miles. At this time, Rallycheck only supports Kilometers.

It has no function in the app. The Rallycheck app does not know the Norm Speed for the participants. It is the responsibility of the participants to avoid speeding!

Best Practice:
The Norm Speed can be used With DirectSave and ShowSpeed.

Using this combination of options enables the organisation of a rally to check the speed of a participant at a certain control. Optionally the results calculation module can award penalty points if a competitor is caught speeding.

Last updated on 3 January 2020

4.2.1.13.Norm Bogey Time

The Norm Bogey Time (NBT) defines the bogey time on a (speed) test.

Best Practice:
There should be at least two controls with the NBT set.
The first control is set to the time 0:00:00, and represents the start of the test.
The second control has the NBT set to the bogey time of the test.

Last updated on 21 October 2020

4.2.1.14.Bearing

The driving direction for a control can be set on the “Bearing” tab.

Route Control Options Bearing

Set Bearing to the ON position to enable it’s use.

Route Control Options Bearing 2

 

The Bearing represents the driving direction in which the control can be detected. When driving to the control from another direction, the control is not shown in the Rallycheck app. You can set the driving direction bij clicking the arrow on the outer ring an moving it around.

Bearing radius

The bearing radius is set to 22,5 degrees left and right. This is the correct default value. If at all possible, leave it at the default value. With this value a participant can deviate up to 22,5 degrees with regards to the defined angle (driving direction) when encountering a control. The defined range for detecting the control is shown between “Bearing start” and “Bearing end”. It is important not to make the value of the bearing radius too low.

In the following image the Way point on the road map is shown. The driving direction is 133 degrees, and the “green” highlight in the way point proximity is the direction from which the control can be detected.

4.2.2.Upload GPX

This option can be used if you ave all the Waypoints for the controls in another map program. You can export the information from your other map system to GPX format. Then upload the GPX file to the Rallycheck portal. All the controls will be shown on the map.

Upload GPX

When uploading you can chose to append or overwrite existing waypoints.
You can also choose which Leg, Stage and Class should be updated.

Note: If your rally has Participants that have finished a Stage, then the GPX upload will update waypoints. This is by design.
Rallycheck protects you from accidentally deleting waypoints and controls that may already be used in a stage.

Best practice: For a list of options in the GPX file see:
https://rallycheck.com/gps-to-gpx-definitions/

Last updated on 27 August 2020

4.3.Participants

A participant must have at least the following information:

  1. A rally class
  2. A valid Rallycheck email account
  3. Surname of the driver
  4. Surname of the navigator

There are a number of options on the participants page. They are listed below.

4.4.Starting list

This menu option shows the Starting list of the rally. The first time you use this for the rally, no list is visible.

You can create a starting list for each combination of Stage / Leg / Class.

A starting list is created using a base starting date and time. For example, if your base starting time is 9:00, the the first Participant will start at 9:01

The base time you set will also set the starting time for the LEg / Stage / Class combination on the “Legs & Stages” tab of the “Edit Rally” page. Likewise, when editing this field on the Legs & Stages Tab, this will change the Base starting date & time. However, new starting times will only be calculated when clicking on “Generate starting list” button on the  “Starting list” page.

The Starting time of a Participant will be used in the following instances.

  1. When using the TC-START control
  2. When calculating times relative to the Norm Passage Time of the TC-START or START control or following TC controls.
  3. When printing a Starting list.

The following Participants will not receive a Starting time:

  1. course cars
  2. organisers of a rally
