Local rules or deviations from Sporting Code

Because of the postponement of the five rounds to the second day and since the weather was excellent in the early morning of the second day, with the consonance of the fliers, the third round for F1A was 360 seconds. For the same round, the max time was 240 seconds for F1B. +2 minutes additional time agreed by F1B fliers with full maxes.

Observations on timekeeping

There was a fixed 1 timekeeper in each starting pole with binocular. There were some moving additional timekeepers keeping time as a second timekeeper. Time keeping was very correct.
