NAVIGATION AT ZAGREB RALLY

Every Rally Raid in the world, including Zagreb Rally, is a dangerous activity! Rally tracks (Zagreb Rally is over 200 kilometers) pass through various off-road terrains (forests, gravel roads, fields) as well as inhabited areas (villages, towns, public roads). On rally routes, including Zagreb Rally, unpredictable and unexpected surprises are possible; however, the task of a good rally organizer is to alert drivers and thus protect them from foreseeable and known dangers.

The most important “tool” we use to manage rally race safety is the ROADBOOK!

The Roadbook is the rally Bible, containing all the important navigation and orientation information for drivers, as well as various warnings for the dangers that await them on the route. Some typical warnings include: sharp turns, slippery terrain, difficult terrain, obstacles on the road, narrow passages, as well as speed limit warnings (which must be strictly adhered to, at the risk of being excluded from the event/race).

The Roadbook is the essential navigation tool for every rally, including Zagreb Rally, and here are our recommendations regarding the navigation equipment you need to have to ensure your experience and safety at Zagreb Rally are at a satisfactory level:

ROADBOOK TRAINING

Roadbook navigation isn’t as daunting as it seems! All you need is a little time on YouTube and 10-15 kilometers of riding with a Roadbook to grasp the basics of Roadbook navigation. Trust us – once you learn to drive with a Roadbook, everything else will seem less exciting.

On the day of Zagreb Rally, a short Roadbook Navigation education session will be organized at the camp. However, we recommend that you familiarize yourself with Roadbook navigation before the event itself so that you’re ready to hit the track and complete your first rally without major issues.

Here are some recommended learning materials:
