Round 3 was unique, as it shows a spotless score sheet for Aerodyne Aerokart. It happens quite frequently that a team has no point deductions in a round, even though there are plenty of red dots on the score sheet. There was nothing that caught any judge's attention in the French Round 3.
Hayabusa was not so lucky, as the completion of Block 19 (Ritz - Icepick) on the 3rd page was not done properly enough for thre of the five judges. The Belgian team probably expected a red flag in this case and lost the round with this point deduction.

Hayabusa completed two more scoring points within working time than France and won the round after penalties by two points, as well. It could have been a 3-point win. There is no doubt that the exit formation was complete. However, four judges could not see all grips at the same time for a split second and pushed the red button. It was still the first and only sole highscore for Hayabusa.
The teams in Dubai missed five of the 22 blocks (8,12,14,17,18) and six of the 16 random formations (A, D, F, J, N, Q). Most of the missing blocks are on the slower side, while six random formations would increase the scoring level. It probably evens out for an average draw.
