utilise sections from the Adult Easy course.
The Medium Course is aimed at 16” Electrics, inexperienced 20” Electric and Petrol Autos.
The Easy Course is aimed at inexperienced 16” electrics and 12.5 's.
In order to encourage beginners and rider development, all courses are open to any Class, i.e. any
wheel size, any age group.


Method of Marking. Similar to TSR 22B, NON-STOP with the addition of a 4 for the Medium and
Easy Courses.
0 Clean; 1 Footing once; 2 Footing twice; 3 Footing more than twice; 4 After receiving reasonable
outside assistance (not on the Hard Course); 5 Failure; (Observer's will be very strict on Failure
from striking a marker or going outside the section boundaries, not as strict on the Non-Stop rule
providing it can be seen the Rider is endeavouring to proceed forward with all effort); 5 When
requested by a rider rather than attempt the section; 5 Entering a section before being called upon
to do so by an official; 10 Not attempting a section when called upon to do so by an official.


Series points will be awarded to the top 15 eligible finishers for each course, at each round on the
following scale:
1st 20 points; 2nd 17 points; 3rd 15 points; 4th 13 points; 5th 11 points; 6th 10 points; 7th 9
points; 8th 8 points; 9th 7 points; 10th 6 points; 11th 5 points; 12th 4 points 13th 3 points 14th 2
points 15th 1 point. Should a Tie occur it is to be resolved in accordance with TSR23.
At the conclusion of the series points from all rounds will be totalled. Should a tie occur it is to be
resolved in accordance with TSR23 (b).
Riders are permitted to change courses between events, however the courses that have been ridden most will be used for points towards the trophies. ( If equal entries, then the lowest points apply).


The Organisers believe in setting the right standards for the sport's future riders and developing them to compete in future National Championship events. So, the Observer's decision is absolute and final,no challenges to the Observer's decision and no alterations to sections, (kicking stones) or bad language, especially from over enthusiastic competitive parents.
