Rule 61.2 A competitor-friendly change in Rule 61.2 is intended to reduce the chances that a protest will be declared invalid because the information on the protest form is inaccurate. Last year, the protestor was required to identify in the written protest "the incident including where and when it occurred," and, if there was an error in what the protestor wrote on the protest form about where and when the incident occurred, that error could not be corrected. It's always easy to remember the incident, but protestors often make an error about where and when the incident occurred. When the course is twice around, they may state that the incident occurred during the first lap, when it actually occurred during the second; or, when there are several races in a day, they may state that it occurred in the second race when it actually happened in the third. Rule 61.2 still requires the protestor to "identify the incident" on the written form, but she can supply or correct the information about "when and where" the incident occurred either before or during the hearing.
