If the race is classed as an official 'draft-legal' bike then yes you're right a few things wouldn't be allowed. BTA rules only apply to our non-draft races. In draft-legal they use ITU ruling, which means bar end shifters and bull horns would not be allowed.

However, you can still use bridged aero bars. Heres the official ITU ruling:

"Clip-ons will be permitted provided they do not extend more than 15cm beyond the front wheel axel and they are not longer than the break levers' foremopst line
Straight forward cli-ons must be bridged, and must not carry facing break levers"

To paraphrase Groucho Marx, I wouldn't want to draught in a race where they let people like me draught.

It would be too unsafe.
