The problem here is that he basically re-started the race 32 minutes after his initial start: The "orig" track shows crossings of the start cylinder at 14:35, the last one at 14:35:19. That's when he flew into the start cylinder for the first time. But we have more crossings at 15:04 - that's when he flew out of the cylinder. And then again at 15:07 he got close enough to the cylinder to be considered "in" due to the 0.5% cylinder size tolerance.

For scoring we always take the last crossing of the start cylinder. To be fully precise, we also look at all the other turnpoints and take the last crossing of the start cylinder that gives us the longest sequence of subsequent turnpoints afterwards. But since this pilot did not reach any turnpoints after crossing the start cylinder, the crossing at 15:07 is the one he's being scored for.

Although this is not pretty for this pilot, I think I'll leave it for now, for these reasons:

  1. Section 7 does not have much to say about re-starts, but I feel that it's OK to say that if a pilot re-starts the task before reaching the first turnpoint after the start, he's scored for the last attempt, and not for the better of the two.
  2. It's a very rare edge case: Had he reached the turnpoint in his first attempt, he'd be scored for that.
