Competitor Appearance

At High Desert Trails, we try hard to present a professional appearance to the public at all times. We expect clean rally cars with a properly applied sticker package. Clean doesn’t mean ‘NEW’, it means that the last rally has been washed off the car, glass is clean, and the stickers and numbers are bright and visible. We are proud to be a NASA Rally Sport event, and the stickers and banners from other sanctioning bodies must be completely covered or removed. An inexpensive rectangle of white vinyl is going to look a lot better in photos and after a day of rallying than some race tape hastily applied. Tape (of any sort) is an unacceptable covering.

HDT will be providing the 17″ x 6″ event decal and a set of black numbers for your car.
NASA Rally Sport will be providing the 17″ x 6″ header and a 12″ x 12″ number backer.
You are expected to have at the very minimum a 29″ X 12″ area clear of other stickers.

Numbers not on a white or yellow backer or that are hard to read must be remedied before the start of the event. Driver and Co-driver names on the vehicle are encouraged.
