Default Wing Mounting

I am sure this has been posted somewhere else. However, I was looking at pictures from the Reedy Race and some from the last worlds in Italy. And the drivers had mounted the rear wing farther back, making the wing hang behind the rear or car instead of ontop of the rear of the car. You know what I am talking about?

I want to know what handling characteristics this gives the car?

Thanks in advance. Any information is helpful.

mounting the wing further back gives you much more rearendgrip whilst steering stays the same resulting in a much smoother driving car. once you tried you never go back. mounting the wing further forward is just a waste of grip, nothing else

Is there something in ROAR rules against this?, or is it 100% legal?

In the UK the following rules are for the body;



I don't know how far the wings hang over at the international races but there should be a diagram of body dimensions for ROAR somewhere.

I did see a picture on ROAR's site, but this was the nuts

8.9.5.7 Body rules:
Bodies must resemble 2 or 4 door cars that have raced in a Touring Car series. See
Global Body Specifications below.
Wheel arch cut-outs: Maximum 9.5 mm over tire diameter
The rear of the body may not be cut higher than 55mm above the measuring surface
with the chassis resting on 20mm blocks.
No windows may be cut out.
8.9.5.8 Wing rules:
Only one wing is allowed, fixed to the same place as the wing on the full-size vehicle.
The wing must be fastened to the rear deck of the body, not directly to any part of the
chassis of the vehicle.
The rear edge of the wing or side dams may not extend beyond the rear of the body
more than 10 mm.
No part of the wing may extend above the roofline of the body.
8.9.5.9

Looks like the BRCA picture applies to the ROAR rules, with regard to the wing at least.
