A time-speed-distance or TSD rally, is a type of motorsport with the object of driving each segment of a Course in a specified time at a specified average speed. The rally is usually conducted on public roads, but sometimes includes off-road and track sections. Contestants usually compete in teams composed of a driver and navigator. Teams usually start a TSD rally at fixed intervals, creating a field that is spread along the course.
Rallying – the word itself brings up images of incredibly fast driven machines over rugged terrains. Unlike track races which happen over circuits that are tightly controlled and prone to be memorised, rallying takes place on open roads and tracks.
But within rallying there is a class that is not about speed alone. This is a class where speeds visually play no role. Welcome to world of TSD (Time Speed Distance) rallying.
Navigation is an integral part of a TSD rally. The route for the course is a secret and you have to use the road book to reach the end. During the course, a speed limit is imposed in different parts that needs to be adhered strictly. Along the way, secret checkpoints note the time and then compute whether you are driving fast or slow. Penalty points are applied accordingly. Penalties for going faster than the stipulated time are double than going slower. The route is covered by the crew to calculate the ideal time. The penalties are minimum for times matching the ideal time.
While in theory everything seems easy, it is quite difficult in practice. Navigators use all sorts of devices to keep track of their time calculations and guide the drivers over the route. It is also comparatively cheaper to participate in such rallies as there is not much to be done for your normal car to make it rally worthy.
