Adventure Riding, Garmin Precision Trophy
The ability to orientate is at the base of the pleasure of driving at the Swank Rally of Sardinia; to give a pinch of competitiveness also to the Experience category, we propose a game aimed at navigation precision.

2) Motorcycles must be equipped with a non-adjustable odometer kilometre counter. Participants must arrive at the start of the stage with their odometer set to this function. The person in charge of the start/finish will take note of the indicated mileage, write it down on the time card and check that the odometer is working and not adjustable.
The counts will be processed using the motorbike odometers.
4) At the end of the last stage, the winner will be the one who has covered the total mileage closest to the official mileage. Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 overall finishers.
5) The score of the Precision Trophy classification will be valid also for the Team classification of the Swank Rally di Sardegna, together with the scores obtained by the other participants of the team, in the Rally classification.
