    Note: It is also possible to copy previous races rather than manually adding races. See here for details.

  2. Specify the race type.

    Note: Result level is a required field for feature races and is not applicable for other race types. For example, use A Feature rather than Feature.

  3. Specify the race details in the available fields:
