Heating of Tyres

Clarification: heating of tyres (Email just landed)

The MSA has issued a clarification of the recently published regulation change regarding the heating of tyres in Sprints, Hill Climbs and Drag Racing. This clarification, shown as red additions and struck through deletions, is as follows:

(S) With the exception of Drag Racing, tThe heating of tyres, by any method other than 9.3.1. above, or their treatment by any chemical substance is prohibited. For the avoidance of doubt, no manner of abnormally raising the temperature of the tyres/wheels above the natural ambient temperature is allowed.

Date of implementation: 1 January 2018.

Reason: Having been approved by MSC in June and subsequently publicised it became apparent that the above clarification is necessary

9.3.1. The spinning of wheels (tyre warming) will only be permitted in a designated area and which should be clearly defined.

Like I kept saying this reg is not banning the tyre warming from the "Spin Clean" area right before the start line as that is the clearly defined designated area.

Speed doesn't kill, it's not being able to stop in time!
