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. Blue painters tape is an unacceptable covering.
We will be providing the 4″ x 20″ event header decal. You are expected to have at the very minimum; a 12″ X 20″ area of white, and YOUR OWN numbers on each side of the vehicle. Tape numbers are not acceptable. Numbers not on a white 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.
