Un­der­body rule change for ral­ly­ing

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Changes have been made to MSA reg­u­la­tions for un­der­body pro­tec­tion on his­toric rally cars fol­low­ing rep­re­sen­ta­tion from or­gan­is­ers of the MSA Bri­tish His­toric Rally Cham­pi­onship.

From 2017, the lim­i­ta­tion on per­mit­ted ma­te­rial used to pro­tect the un­der­side of his­toric cars on spe­cial stage ral­lies has been eased to al­low the use of any ma­te­rial of pe­riod spec­i­fi­ca­tion, which opens up the op­tion to use composite ma­te­rial. To date, fi­bre­glass was the most com­mon op­tion.

The pro­posal came from dis­cus­sions within the BHRC man­age­ment team and is a move to help keep in­creas­ingly valu­able his­toric cars com­pet­ing on gravel ral­lies.
