Heres an extract from the rules.

Road Taxed Vehicle (RTV) Classes

LWB: Any four-wheel drive vehicle with a wheelbase over 93 inches, driven to the event, which in the condition presented is road legal with current road tax displayed and minimum third party insurance. A current MOT certificate should be available and no changes are allowed which would be unacceptable to an MOT examiner or are as described in ‘Modified Vehicle’ below.
At least three drivers in a class to qualify for separate prize or included in ‘RTV SWB’ class.

SWB: Any four wheel drive vehicle with a wheelbase less than 93 inches. Details as per ‘RTV LWB’.
At least three drivers in a class to qualify for separate prize or included in the RTV LWB Class.

Modified Vehicle:

This describes any RTV modified from Factory Standard by the fitting of any type of after market cross axle locking or slip reduction mechanism, tyres greater than 33" diameter (by size on tyre not measured diameter) or body modifications calculated to increase greatly the approach/departure angle. ie a BobTail or lack of a bumper.

Note: An RTV Modified Vehicle may compete in the appropriate Standard Class but is not eligible for a Prize or points.

Modified/Trialer LWB: Any four-wheel drive vehicle with a wheelbase of 88 inches and over which is not eligible for any of the above classes. This includes RTV towed / transported to the event.

Modified/Trialer SWB: As Trialer LWB but with a wheelbase measuring less than 88 inches


SCORING:

All vehicles must start from a ‘standing start’ at the start gates on a signal from the CoC or their delegate. Scoring begins when any part of the vehicle enters or strikes the start gates.

1 point: For each shunt, roll back or ‘rocking’, this is based on vehicle body movement, not on the wheels spinning.

2 points: For each cane struck by any part of the vehicle or occupant in forward or reverse motion. All canes (on that section) are considered ‘live’ until touched.

2 points: For crossed tracks between two gates in an attempt to avoid a shunt.

7 points: For each gate missed out. At least one wheel must pass through the gate in a forward direction to avoid a ‘missed gate’ penalty.

Max+ : Is the maximum points for that section in that vehicle’s class plus 1point for each set of gates left to drive.

Max+ : For any vehicle requiring assistance of any kind whilst competing or for touching any boundary tapes, crossed canes or for three unsuccessful attempts between any two gates, this is based on vehicle body movement, not on the wheels spinning.
The minimum score for a Max+ is 5 points.


They are confusing to start with but you will get the hang of them eventually!
