The MSA has issued a clarification of the recently published regulation change regarding the heating of tyres in Sprints, Hill Climbs and Drag Racing. This clarification, shown as red additions and struck through deletions, is as follows:

(S)9.3.1.1. With the exception of Drag Racing, tThe heating of tyres, by any method other than 9.3.1. above, or their treatment by any chemical substance is prohibited. For the avoidance of doubt, no manner of abnormally raising the temperature of the tyres/wheels above the natural ambient temperature is allowed.

Date of implementation: 1 January 2018.

Reason: Having been approved by MSC in June and subsequently publicised it became apparent that the above clarification is necessary.

This communication is for general release and is authorised to hold regulatory value.
