248.5 Pick Your Route Obstacles
a. To be driven over a course of obstacles (paired markers) with no set route. The number of obstacles to be proportionate to the dimensions of the driving area. Not to exceed 20 obstacles.
b. Typically, obstacles in this type of class are not measured for each entry but are set at 80 inches (200 cm) at the start of the competition, and only reset in the event of a knockdown.
c. After passing through the Start markers, the driver shall proceed through each obstacle to the designated Finish markers, choosing his own route. Each obstacle and the start and finish lines to be negotiated once and only once, but may be approached from either direction.  Driving an obstacle more than once or through the Start/Finish lines out of sequence will be considered off course.
d. Course faults are listed in Article 246, Penalties. Course faults are scored as penalty seconds and are added to the driver’s elapsed time. Placings are determined on a low total time basis.
