Matthew Noble-Marker epitomized everything good about rally. He was a free-spirit who lived to rally, always willing to help anyone in need, he was a lovable goofball and a fierce competitor who touched the hearts of all who knew him. Born in 1979 and a native of Elk Rapids, MI, Matt lost his life doing what he loved in a tragic accident in 2011 here in Washington State. With the blessing of the Marker Family we are proud and honored to keep Matt's Dream Alive..."Livin' the Dream 2015"

The Sprint Stage covers a total distance of 5 miles over the gravel roads North West of Shelton WA. 45% of the stage is wide, fast and flowing before diving into an acute corner at the spectator area and becoming tight and fast with a handful of hair raising blind acute corners enroute to finish. The teams will make 3 runs from North to South before breaking for lunch and service and then making 3 more runs in the reverse direction.

7.2 Competitors will be given simple instructions at registration for a recce route, stage opening and closing times, and speed limits. At stage starts there will be a recce control car to hold competitors until the stage opening time and then release them individually at approximately ½ minute intervals. Competitors drive their own pace through the stage and public road sections (but must adhere to the stated speed limits and respect the opening and closing times).

7.3 Vehicles used for reccce must be normal street vehicles, prepared rally cars will be allowed.

7.4 Each participating vehicle must contain two or more persons, including the driver and co-driver of record for the entry. Additional passengers are allowed only if they are a registered driver or co-driver at this event.

7.5 Local law enforcement may be taking radar on the transit section. Any teams caught speeding will be banned from further completion.

8 REGISTRATION
8.1 Registration will be TBD. (See appendix 2 for map).

9 SCRUTINEERING

10 START OF THE RALLY SPRINT
10.1 Starting order will be given during the competitor roll call at the Drivers Meeting. The drivers meeting will be held in front of the Registration tent. (See appendix 2 for map).

11 RUNNING OF THE RALLY SPRINT

11.1 The sprint will consist of 6 runs on the stage. Following the 3rd run, competitors will break for a 90 minute service/lunch. Following the break teams will make an additional 3 runs.

11.2 A fast sweep crew will be used on the stage for the purpose of ensuring the road is cleared of any medical situations and that all competitors are accounted for. The fast sweep crew enters stage shortly after the start time of the last competitor on the 3rd run. Upon reaching a stuck competitor, the fast sweep crew will immediately offer to extract the competitor with a single pull using the competitors tow strap. A competitor so extracted by the fast sweep crew will be allowed to continue ahead of fast sweep (so long as the stage is open) and will not be penalized. If assistance is not accepted or if the single pull is unsuccessful, the fast sweep crew will continue past (to remain on schedule for the safety of the last competitor), taking the team’s time card and effecting a time-bar for that run. ANY COMPETITOR PASSED BY FAST SWEEP MAY RE-ENTER THE EVENT IF THEY PASS A SUBSEQUENT TECH INSPECTION

11.3 Heavy sweep follows fast sweep and will assist in removing stranded competitors and vehicles from the course. Heavy sweep may choose to leave competition vehicles within stages during the break in the interest of maintaining schedule..

11.4 If a control issues a time that the competitor believes to be in error, the competitor may point out the problem to the control worker and request a correction. If the dispute cannot be solved immediately, the worker shall, on request, initial the time and note the nature of the dispute in the Control Log. The competitor may then submit a written inquiry to scoring.

11.5 In the event of a large time gap between teams, an ATC may require a competitor to immediately enter the time control without penalty in order to reduce the gap and improve safety. Competitors so “waved in” must comply without delay. It is in the team’s best interest and helps avoid running into scheduled stage closing time.

11.6 Any circumstances not covered by these Supplementary Regulations and the TBD Rules shall be decided by the Chairman, Clerk of the Course, or the Stewards, as applicable.

11.7 Transits are not for testing rally cars. Activities in transits such as aggressive swerving, braking and accelerating are deemed unauthorized testing and if observed by any Judge of Fact will be penalized according to TBD rules.

11.8 All rally officials and their delegates are Judges of Fact. Their observations constitute valid testimony, and they are authorized to report violations of these rules and the TBD rules to the Stewards.

12 SERVICE
12.1 Service will be TBD.

12.2 Service crews must use a tarp under competing vehicles at all times while they are being serviced. These tarps must extend beyond the vehicle in all directions.

12.3 An MTC will be set up at the North end of service.

13 RESULTS/AWARDS
13.1 Trophies will be presented to the drivers and co-drivers of the winning entries in each class, provided a minimum of two (2) cars are entered in the class. Trophies will also be presented to the Overall winner. Special awards will be handed out by Michelle Marker and additional awards may be announced by the event Chairman. The Award presentations will be in front of the Registration tent. (See appendix 2 for map).

This event would be perfect to shake down the new car. The problem is that I can't access Facebook and the supps posted here are incomplete. I can't risk running a car I don't own in an event unless I know that there is a sanction and insurance.

Robert, I think Steve would have posted this is the Rumors, lies, and damn lies if this wasn't something he was busting his ass to get accomplished. He's even flying the marker family out here.
Why would he do that?

just an update:

I spent the day with John Nispel on the stage and we are putting the route book together tonight. I know there are a lot of questions regarding this but please be patient the answers will be forth coming and you will not be disappointed. I am meeting with the stage captain and my Net Contol tomorrow and finalizing details and everything is coming together as planned.

With respect to the question being asked, Big Brother has offered to look our event over and
I would like to thank members of the Olympus Committee who have lent their knowledge and experience this week to look over the stage and operations to help ensure our work and planning was and will be at a level expected of an event like this and for their offer to help out if needed. I am completely confident in the team of volunteers and officials we have put together and look forward to a great event.

We have put a lot of hard work into and are dedicated to putting on the best event possible. If you can afford us this week to wrap up the last details you will find the wait was more than worth it. I thank you for your patience.
