The latest regulation changes approved by the Motor Sports Council include a series of amendments to clarify the Code 60 procedure in circuit racing.

The changes to section (Q) of the MSA Yearbook offer further guidance on the use of Code 60, which was introduced as an optional alternative to the safety car for those clubs wishing to use it.

For rallying, there is a new definition of Section (B) of Historic Category 4b, allowing ‘Cars homologated in Groups A, N and B between 1 Jan 1986 and 31 Dec 1990 excluding any cars that were regulated out by the FIA.’

Other changes include a new regulation in Section (S) prohibiting ‘The heating of tyres, by any method, or their treatment by any substance’ in Speed events, i.e. Sprints, Hill Climbs and Drag Racing.

Meanwhile changes to Section (D) offer an ‘overarching definition of the various forms of permission that the MSA may give’ in relation to event organisation.

Other new regulations affect MSA Yearbook sections: (C) Judicial; (F) Emergency and Medical Services; (H) Competitors: Licences; (J) Competitors: Vehicles; (L) Permitted Tyres; (R) Rallying; and (W) Championships.
