Gerard C should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
As to Group 1 and 3 which are sister categories if the original windows are retained do we have to apply a film on them for circuit use? Or replace them by 4 mm Lexan units? Scrutineering may be different on this point, I thought it was for Grp2, 4 and 5.

Appendix K is simple, take Appendix VIII to Appendix K for Group 1 and 3 from Period E up to G1, at the top, it says "NO OTHER MODIFICATIONS AUTHORISED, therefore as nothing permits the replacement of original windows, no FAA type material for these. It must be original, safety glass and yes, addition of film is accepted as added safety.

If a ruling doesn't say "It is permitted", "may be used" or makes it an obligation by using "must" and/or "minimum requirement", then, it is not allowed.

I find the appendix K is clear. But what to do with a scrutineer who requires you to change the windows when you are on the field…

Particular attention should be given to Appendix VI to Appendix K which is for Roll Over Protection Structure regulations. A new and complete version is now part of the rulebook, no changes but we've tried to make it clearer to everybody and we hope it helps.

No worries, I'm sorting a carbon/aluminium shell with sequential gearbox for my Mini as I heard there was some special races next year

Louis, I do recommend top chop to satisfy wind tunnel requirements assuring good results. This is what it takes in the category you're targeting. For our English friends, the almost-official name is Le Groupe 1 à la française Your car must be compliant with unwritten rules while the appendix is to be invented… May be the ZZ!
