10 - Change in backtrack scoring
Annex 4, 2.A1, 2.A2, 2.A3, 2.A4, 2.A5
A 100% penalty will be imposed for backtracking
Very harsh penalty for unintentional backtrack. Even one second of the unintentional backtrack can bring 0 score from the task to the competitor. Losing all point points from a task is very severe and will make a favourable overall result impossible. It results in loss of interest in microlight competitions. In order to attract new competitors and keep current , it will be better to reduce the penalty to 30%.
