No it isn't.

Thank you Jeremy for the insight. Confirmation that the two 'Monza' caps I have fitted and which have the secondary cap underneath should be acceptable!

So,those of us who have a tried and tested Exposed Monza cap [Spa 2009- didn't leak a drop of the 100ltr's of Belgiums 'Finest'] Now have to work out something that wont leak,doesn't negate the idea of having a quick fill filler. Why oh why cant these prats leave well alone??? Next thing we'll hear is that there are anti leak inserts available----------- from a factory owned by a director of the FIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111

I doubt that it's much of a problem Terry, but none-the-less it's still a pain in the butt.

that said I think there's room to plug an n/r valve on to here before fitting the Monza Cap.

Easyier if you dont have a 3 inch filler neck though.
Why do you want to fit a Monza Cap on a small neck-all you need do is fit a screw type cap. Dont forget to get a Rollover valve fitted to your breather,thats a certain 'Fail' at Spa.

Luckily Esper I don't have a Lotus and luckily have found on looking underneath that there is already a cross tube near enough to be used for mounts! Just need to work out if seat can be modded or if will have to be replaced.

Hi everyone.
First of all, thanks for posting the link with new regs.
I have a question about the new rollbar rules. My car (Ford Mustang 1965) is fitted with a rollbar which has 1 diagonal member (drawing K-12), 1 doorbar on each side (drawing K-15) and no roof reinforcement (just main roof members). I had never have problems so far during scrutineering (both in Italy and Europe), so I am wondering if the new modifications (red text) of article 8.3.2 onwards (diagonal member for Ct and GT over 2.000cc- roof reinforcement- doorbars) apply to all periods of cars or from period F or....
Thank you fro your reply.
Kind regards.

Enrico

Enrico, my take on this- as someone with no authority at all on the subject, but have tried to interpret the regs - is that it is over 2 litre CT and GTS cars of all periods.

Which means from Jan 1947 (Start of 'E') through to whenever CT & GTS finish- could be mid 80s or later- get confused trying to work that bit out!

Maybe I am wrong regarding period 'E' cars but looks like that from Jan 1962 'F' onwards like your Mustang are included. But this is only my interpretation- hopefully some clarification will come from race organisers and scrutineers before our seasons start!

Makes me glad only have under 2 litre car- but perhaps FIA saving that for next year!

Thanks Mike.
Unfortunately,when new rules come out it's always a matter of interpretation... Anyway I have had the same feeling as you... over 2.000cc cars for all periods :-(
More kilos in the car, more euros out of the pocket... That's motor racing, isn't it?

Certainly is. Thinking myself lucky that have only got job to do from App K changes!

Suddenly non FIA historic racing becomes more appealing!
