Anything set in these fields will be used to populate new files when they're created. If a field is left blank, the corresponding header data will be blank when a race is created.

A key and license is needed to change the default setting for governing body, governing body abbreviation, and the country to anything other than USA and Canada.
The Factors/Lists and Officials tabs are explained more fully in the sections detailing these fields within a race file (see factors/lists and officials). The items on these tabs are applicable mainly to alpine events.
