Summary

The RALLY-RAID PORTUGAL SERIES 2018 will be based on 4 events running from March to November 2018.

This championship is organized under "Federação Motociclismo de Portugal (FMP)" and the clubs selected by FMP, with the support of R3 Roadbook Rally Raid.

All event's dates include the arrival day (Friday) + 2 day stages (Saturday + Sunday).

The event dates and locations will be:

:: 02 - 04 March :: Santo André

:: 18 - 20 May :: tbd

:: 29 June - 01 Jul :: tbd

:: 02 - 04 November :: tbd

(dates can be changed without previous notification as per FMP and Clubs decision)

 

The Concept

Based on the FIM and FIA model and respecting all roadbook navigation principals used in the World Championship and Rally Dakar, R3 aims to be a reference of quality and precision that allows all participants an authentic roadbook navigation experience.

Open to Motorbikes, Quads and SSV, the R3 events are suitable for everyone, from the most experienced riders (who wants to practice for an official race) to the beginners (aiming to be challenged on roadbook navigation). For this reason participants have the choice to register in 3 different categories: COMPETITION, PROMOTION and HOBBIE.

 

Rally-Raid Portugal Series 2018

There are 3 different categories you can register in:

:: COMPETITION - designed for the most experience riders, it includes timed sections. The final result is your time on the crono sections + speed penalties + missed track section penalties.

:: PROMOTION - designed for non-professional riders that like to challenge their navigation skills together with timed sections. The final result is your time on the crono sections + speed penalties + missed track section penalties + excess distance due to navigation mistakes (all converted into a timed result).

:: HOBBIE - designed for those wanting to learn how to navigate, the results are only based on distance (meaning navigation errors) + speed penalties + missed tracks section penalties. No timed sections.

 

Each event will have a separate classification counting for the 2018 Final Results.

At the end of the championship, the best 4 results will count for the final classification.

 

The COMPETITION category will have a designated RALLY-RAID Champion.

The PROMOTION category will have a designated TROPHY Winner.

The HOBBIE category will have a designated CHALLENGE Winner.

 

There will be a separate classification for participants with more than 45 years old - VETERANS in every class.

For more information about the rules please contact us.

* Light Support 

We are NOT providing Rally Support on a competition event. This means you can’t except someone to follow you wherever you go, to assist you whenever you need. That’s definately NOT the case. Light Support means our Van will be on every CP carrying spaires for our rented bikes (and your spaires if you bring them), all necessary tools to perform end of day maintenance or any repair during the stage (on best effort).

You can expect us to carry your bike in case of crash or mechanical damage + end of day light support (lube chain, check oil and water levels, check nav instruments, clear air filter). Repairs during the day are not included (as we might be assisting another rider), but on a best effort we will do everything we can to assist you and your bike during the daily stages.

Cancellations

If a participant book a tour, but for some reason the payment has not been processed, HorizonAdventures will not secure the place on the tour, and reserves the right to cancel the reservation and open this place for other participants.

As this is an event organized by the Clubs under the supervision on the Portuguese Federation (FMP), HorizonAdventures can't be responsible for any cancellation that may occur for any reason, therefore we can't guarantee any reimbursement should the event be cancelled. This risk should be covered by each participant's Travel Insurance.

 

Safety

The personal and group security is a priority for HorizonAdventures.

The client must hold a driving license which must be brought on the tour, and has made known of any endorsements or restrictions made to it by the licensing authorities.

All fines, judicial costs, etc., derived from any form of traffic infraction or other, caused by the client during the tour, will be payable by the client.

For all intents and purposes, the client is aware of the current legislation in Portugal and therefore assure, under Article 40, paragraph 2 of Law 5/2007, from January 16th, approving the Basic Law of Physical Activity and Sport, that does not have any contraindications to the practice of various sporting activities, which will be taking place.

The client declare that he has taken note of the program, taking any and all liabilities arising from acts performed by him of which result in damages to HorizonAdventures, or others, and accept to be obliged to pay compensation to the affected parties at the precise extent of this damage.

If the client leaves the tour voluntarily before completion of the tour, or is required to do so by HorizonAdventures, (on the grounds that the client’s presence is detrimental to the safety or well-being of the tour or any one person on the tour), then all liability that HorizonAdventures may bear to that client (namely the event insurance) will cease immediately. HorizonAdventures will have no responsibility for repatriation of the participant, or any other expenses which may arise out of such an event.

Additionally, each participant must book in his country of residence a travel insurance including health care with repatriation to his own country, to be used in the event of an accident or medical emergency. This insurance must explicitly not exclude all terrain expeditions using rallyraid vehicles as means of transport, and has to be valid in all countries included on the tour.
