Again I remain indebted to my European Researcher and top ISDT consultant ‘STB’ who has allowed us to access these daily route sheets for each day of the ISDT 1958 from the archive collection of the late Mr Harro Esmarch.
These cards are provided each day to competitors not only indicating the distances and location of check points each day as well as fuel stops, tests and lunch stops. The cards also list the time schedules that are in place based on a number of scenarios directed by climatic conditions on the day. It also categorises the going on the ground as
- I Tarred,
- II Fair,
- III Bad and
- IV Very Bad
