It seems it is a new FIA requirement for plumbed in systems. The safety instructions from the RACB (the Belgian ASN) for the Spa Summer Classic specifically identify it as a requirement for this year - but it will undoubtably spread. All designed to catch us out at scrutineering.

I have just ordered two retaining straps for the princely sum of 4.56 +VAT - the carriage is more than the cost of the straps......

The normal size sold in the UK of 2.25 ltr is still OK - the RACB have amended their original statement of needing 2.4 ltr.
