    The last sentence is a bit confusing. We might want to clarify whether the Organizer, a member of the Jury, or the TD can independently disapprove, or whether they must act together. It might read better as “The event Organizer, a member of the Ground Jury, or the Technical Delegate has the right…..”

    I agree with the previous comment. Delete the entire last sentence – as what does the organizer have to do with any of that, like disapproving the position on the vehicle? That’s not any function of the organizer.

    It appears that the current wording and new wording overlap on my browser. I can’t determine whether what is written is being proposed or is the current wording.

    Never mind; I see that this is a ne proposal and what I see is what would be applied if approved.
