Rule changes May 2017


The GRNZ rules of racing have been updated with effect from May 29th, 2017.

There have been a large number of amendments made to the rules. The vast majority of these amendments are minor and are tidy up changes to make the rules a comprehensive standalone document, following the removal of the Constitutional Rules. For example the rules have been renumbered and rules 5-17 have been brought back from an earlier version of the rules.

Substantive changes are:
