En­gine seal­ing to be in­tro­duced for tour­ing cars

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

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.”
