Competitors asked to act as timekeepers for other contestants.
Timekeepers allowed to move away from the line to avoid models being obscured by vehicles and shade structures.

Observations on timekeeping

To a generally high standard, however some models were carried to great heights and were difficult to see to the ground. This did not affect any of the results.
