The basic rule of the GUCEVO CHALLENGER 2024 competition is based on the fact that the shortest time wins.

Time is calculated according to the formula:

Time Day 1 (enduro) + Day 2 (enduro) + time penalties (if any) = total time.

If the driver does not finish the race, he will receive a time penalty from the organizer for the unfinished part of the track. The competitor who duly fulfills all the conditions, finishes the race, passes all the checkpoints in accordance with the rules, in the shortest time, will be the winner of the competition. We will have a winner in each category. (A, B, C and Veteran). Since this rule does not apply to the Tourist class, we will get their measurement for the winner by the fact that each of the competitors who applies will have to drive two specials, ie speeds, where his time will be measured. Speed ​​1 + Speed ​​2 = total time


Day 1 - Prologue + ENDURO:

  • Competitors who do not start at the Prologue - will be awarded a time penalty of 30 minutes.

  • Failure to stop at a checkpoint or stop outside an established corridor;
  • Overtaking at a checkpoint or within an established corridor;
  • The competitor remains in the established corridor of the checkpoint even after receiving confirmation that he has been registered for that checkpoint.
