This is the only reason for a rule like it ( born on date).
I finished ahead of the slowsi with a well worn 2010 T3r fiberglass Xray the winners weren't much faster then me just got caught out at the start.

My point exactly....you don't need rules to make peeps run older cars. The tires and lower power pretty much negate any advantage a newer chassis will offer.
