There was the Ferrari 208, which was essentially a Ferrari 328 with a 2 litre version of the V8 engine and a turbo to recoup the power all to avoid a particular tax law in Italy, I think.

If any business bought a car with an engine capacity of less than 2000cc they could claim the tax back hence the ruse!

They obviously don't use the 1.4 multiplier for taxation

I wonder how much longer it is going to be before the MSA start asking the license holders for ways to get numbers up at events? Can't see their resistance to this proposal lasting forever?
What does everyone else think?

I doubt that the MSA would ever be concerned at falling numbers at events.

I also think that persistent pressure could well see changes forthcoming. Maybe what is needed is an on-line petition?

Great idea Steve, but who, apart from the stalwarts at UphillRacers would be interested or understood enough to cast a worthwhile vote. Even half the folks reading all the posts dont agree with or understand the implications of the proposals.
