Engine sealing to be introduced for touring cars
Competitors in the Historic Touring Car Challenge will have their engines inspected, measured and sealed this season in a bid to ensure over-sized engines are not being used.
Duncan Wiltshire, organiser of the series for touring cars from 1966 to 1990, announced the new certification system to widespread approval from competitors. Cars that have been inspected and sealed will be recognised within race results.
Wiltshire said: “The introduction of this certification programme is a major initiative in the battle to control over-development of engines in historic racing.
“We will be applying the certification scheme to our 50s Sports Car series also.”
