RCR12c/. Any driver who does not react/anticipate the defending driver moving across to cover his position, which results in contact, will be deemed Avoidable Contact, and dealt with under rule RCR3/.
RCR12d/. Only 1 change of line will be allowed (i.e. Moving from On the racing line, to block the inside line), but must be done early enough to avoid contact with the passing car.
RCR12e/. The lead driver has the right to choose his line in to the turns providing the above are adhered to.
