I doubt very much that the MSA will allow minutes of meetings to be published so that competitors can scrutinise proceedings. In fact I doubt whether Meeting Minutes as most of us understand them even exist.

A large proportion of new cars roll off the production line fitted with tyres that are not in Lists 1A and 1B. Therefore if the "Standard Road Going" classes is to continue shouldn't the regulations for those classes reflect that the cars should run with the same tyres that the cars left the factory with?

As for the difference between (a) when the Tyre Committee make the decision, and (b) when the new lists are published, is because the decision of the Tyre Committee has to be approved within the MSA hierarchy of committees.
