WHAT ISTHE ‘BO­GEY’?

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

No stage in loose-sur­face ral­ly­ing can be com­pleted at a speed of more than 70mph on na­tional ral­lies, as per the MSA Blue Book. If a driver com­pletes the stage quicker than that time, he is given a no­tional av­er­age time for that stage.

It is gen­er­ally ac­cepted that it is up to the or­gan­is­ers to cre­ate a route that doesn’t ex­ceed 70mph for safety reasons, and that can be achieved by us­ing more cor­ners or em­ploy­ing chi­canes to slow speeds. The bo­gey has been a long stand­ing part of the MSA Blue Book.

For more on the bo­gey see ar­ti­cles 26.5 and 28.2 in the MSA Blue Book.
