Am putting this here rather than in other areas mods sorry.
Apparently the MSA released a new law in August effectively banning any tyre warming in speed events and drag racing.
An amendment has been made to allow this in drag racing as it is a fundamental part of the sport and also unsafe to allow very powerful cars down a strip on tyres that have not been heated.
But am wondering two things. Why they are banning it and what sports are affected?
The why I don't now, to prevent people being hit by debris? To prevent on track collisions of people weaving? Noise? No idea.
Certainly speed events, a lot of cars do this to warm up tyres pre run. Rallycross too, before the start they all do it.
Would this include weaving? Or weaving on a safety car session? Lighting up the tyres on the run up to a grid?
