RSC7 Can drivers move freely around the field during driver skills match?



In RSC7, it states that "During a Programming Skills Match, Drivers may move freely around the Field". We are wondering if teams can also move freely around the field during a Driver Skills match or at least switch between driving stations? Sometimes it is hard to see the other side of the field when only staying in one driving station.

Note: This rule only applies to Programming Skills Matches. Driving Skills Matches are still governed by <G18>, especially for strategic violations.
