Re: Hovercraft B/C

I'll be honest, when I first read the rules, I had thought that students would be allowed to decide a run has "failed." However, it's quite clear, only the ES can declare a failed run.

Re: Hovercraft B/C

I was wondering if Rule 5.m. could be used as a loophole during competition.
