TRAIL COURSE #1

Tough Truck Challenge (Trail Course)

A driver has an hour to complete the course. There are two stages each driver must complete. When a driver starts a stage, he/she is competing against the clock. A driver must navigate through the stage gates in the order they are numbered and between the gates, even if winching is required. A time penalty is given for hitting a gate or a boundary. A stage is completed when the driver crosses the finish line. Drivers can bring spare parts for trailside repairs but only what they can fit in a backpack.  Once a stage has been started by the driver; the time will not stop until the driver has crossed the finish line. This includes repairs on course and in the pit.

There is no “Hand of God”. This means all recoveries must be done by using a winch. If the rig is underwater and the driver grabs the rig instead of using the penalty winch, that driver will be charged a 5-minute penalty. If a driver does not have a winch and has to use the penalty winch; a 3-minute penalty will be charged to that driver.

Time bonuses are earned by completing the BONUS SKILLS sections cleanly. If a driver has to winch or hits a boundary or a gate marker, a time bonus will not be awarded and the driver still has to finish the bonus stage. No repairs or battery changes can be made during a skills challenge section. On course, repairs can be made at the point of breakage and as long as the stage is still open.


Time Bonuses:

Completing a time bonus section cleanly a driver will receive a 3-minute time bonus. If a driver has to winch, hits the boundary, or has to make a repair or battery change in the section, no time bonus will be awarded and any penalties will be charged.

Time bonus sections will have a specific color boundary and have a stage-gate at the beginning and end of the section but may involve more than two gates.

TOUGH TRUCK CHALLENGE

Not every truck is built with guts and glory; Tough Truck will put that to the test. Each driver will take their turn at a challenging course against the clock. If a truck falls off a structure, has to reverse, or hits a gate; the run is over.
