RCP PD 249.6g (see 17-015) 17-017

This Proposal is RECOMMENDED by the Pleasure Driving Committee.

RC#: 17-017
Rule/Article: PD 249.6.g
Proponent: ADS Pleasure Driving Committee
Date: posted 31May2016

Strike Article 249.6g

Current Wording:

249.6 Your Route/My Route Obstacles
g. Omitting an obstacle or driving an obstacle twice in the second half of the round results in Elimination. Passing through the Start and Finish markers more than one time will be considered “off course.”

New Wording: Article 244 Off-Course
Unless otherwise specified in individual class rules, a driver is off-course if:
a. a required obstacle is not driven.
b. the start or finish line is not driven.
c. an obstacle is driven in reverse direction, out of sequence or driven twice
d. the start or finish line is driven in reverse direction, out of sequence or driven twice
e. the entire turnout (all horses and all wheels of the vehicle) fails to pass through the obstacle or the start/finish markers.
f. an entry disturbs any part of an obstacle out of its driving sequence

Reason for Change: Being Off Course is described in new Art 244. The penalty for being Off Course is indicated in Art 247, therefore g. is unnecessary and redundant.
