CP - Check points

There will be two different types of checkpoints for both NIAR24h and NIAR600k. One original course with normal checkpoints, then the organization added some checkpoints called PRO checkpoint. These are extra checkpoints for the professional and fast teams. This will be more common in the future in the ARWS. The reason is to get the team to race tighter and closer together. More explanations regarding PRO CP’s will be explained by the referee Lars Bukkahave at the race meeting.
