Any eagle eyes see what car it was during the telecast?

...just in case it should disappear...

Wonder why it hasn't been picked up anywhere else?

Dunno. It's weird.

Mr Noonan was posed the question this evening, I've noticed. He appeared to be unaware of it.

I think I can recall either RBR or Walkinshaw having this seatbelt setup.

It had the left shoulder and left lap belts already connected to the centre release latch.

Actually, it was shown when SvG got into his car for the final stint. I don't have the facilities to check, can someone confirm or tell me I'm dreaming?

peckstar has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
I had been told today by someone who re-watched sandown that it was a triple 8 car.

This seems to confirm that. Did triple 8 get caught out by forgetting that the rules changed last year

Is loosely tethering two belts at their buckles with a breakable zip-tie, considered a modification to the belts and their function?

Perhaps, but I don't feel it warrants anything more than a strong recommendation not to do it.

I think they're saying it's illegal by FIA standards, not CAMS, so who knows how that gets interpreted

They have been told to remove the approval tag so it must be something more permanent than a simple zip-tie or two.

So if the zip tie holds the buckle in so that when released it does not come out of the catch,
surely the mechanism inside still releases it unless it has been modified internally.

So if you put the belts back on and don't push in that one buckle because it is already in there,
do you bet your life or someone else's that it is still in the catch correctly
and wont come out in a crash.????
