David - what is the previous difference referring to in this case? Isn't this their first time on the track for this test?

Maybe "Diff next", "Diff next fastest","Diff next rider", "Diff next pos." or "Diff previous rider" would be a bit clearer, not implying a previous time or session?
Just some thoughts.

I understood what "dif" meant immediately but I can see where some may be momentarily confused but can't think of a better option.

That was helpful, wasn't it? That's me, a helpful girl!
