Stops big rocks being sucked in the top. Probably high enough to not upset the standoff from the throat,

As someone who does not feed engines rocks I would use a K&N or Unifilter and bugger the originality.

That is a weird looking intake though.

 

This shot shows the air box on the car.

Novel use for a tea strainer. Seen on a Classic F3 car's air box  at Brands Hatch.

 

 

It was quite common at the time for the old fashioned teas strainer to be used as a filter on F3 restrictors.

Simon Hadfield had to search for when when he rebuilt Rupert Keegans F3 March.

Ironically the air restrictor was the original one that was raced in period and apparently was found to be illegal!!

I've seen the same thing on a F-3 back in '92 runing in the german championship.
