Delete 6.1 & 6.2:

If the last obstacle is situated within 300 m of the finish, Athletes may stop within 30m of the out gate of the obstacle to repair a broken or detached harness without penalty. A 30m marker will be placed on the track to indicate this point if the last obstacle is within 300 m of the finish.
6.2 Between last obstacle (or 300m) and finish, pace must be trot or walk only. The Athlete will accumulate one penalty point for each five seconds the turnout is not at the walk or trot.

Reason for Change: Paragraphs 1 and 2 become redundant with implementation of Last Transfer section.
