I'll start by saying i wanted to post this on the UK "RaceChat" (lovingly reffered to by most as RaceCrap) message board but find myself still ban'd
seems if you have an opinion they'll ban you for life on those boards
Firstly can someone confirm for me that under "BRCA" rules i WILL
be able to use dual compound front
tires this years winter series(i.e PARMA violets).
Nextly, i would like to question the descision to outlaw these tires , I believe this was done on the presumption of excessive cost and i have to ask, would it have not been a good idea to wait until there released and a firm retail/shop price is established ?? I believe the Jaco's dual's were only slightly more expensive at the recent Vega's meeting and offered better a wear rate and much higher grip level surely off setting the increased cost?? Not forgetting no one was forced to buy them !!
Another or maybe different approach i would have been in favour of is price limiting like with motors and batteries
This works very well I.M.O and also leaves the door wide open for manufactures to offer us better more effective products but within a set pricing structure.
I believe IFMAR has now also adopted this rule too
next they'll be protecting me from myself by banning new cars on the drawing board because someone down the pub/bar thought he heard from a mate it would be costing £250 on release (doh........there goes the Cefx and Trinity)
Anyway i'm sure someone can put me right here ......... and the decisions were made on other grounds or something ??
