2.2.3 KNOWN GATES
When competitors prior to take off are informed of the location of a timing gate, the approach to that gate may be
between 500 and 1000 feet height and in a straight line for the final 1 km. Any deviation from this approach may
incur a penalty.
Rules like this should be a „must“ and not a „may be“ to make it clear fort the competitor. Also the penalty have to be describe exact. Our task catalogue knows only two penaltys: 100 % and 20 %. A penalty of 20 % for each infringment of this rule seems adequate.
