  4. The log book thing is not a msa thing but a awdc only thing , (This is how i under stand it at the moment) This is from the 2011 blue book or year book Definitions 1.1.1. Safety Cage. A structural framework designed to prevent serious bodyshell deformation in the case of a collision or a car turning over. 1.1.2. Rollbar. Structural frame or hoop and mounting points. Rollcage. Structural framework made up of a main rollbar and a front rollbar (or two lateral rollbars), their connecting members, one diagonal member, backstays and mounting points (see drawings K5 and K6). 1.1.3. Main Rollbar. Structure consisting of a nearvertical frame or hoop located across the vehicle just behind the front seats. 1.1.4. Front Rollbar. Similar to main rollbar but its shape follows the windscreen pillars and top screen edge. As you see it states ( a nearvertical frame or hoop)hope this helps . Merry Christmas all nik

One either side of the driver and two to the rear of the driver’s seat. witch there is no mention of dates .
  7. Spoke to Mr Palmer( A MSA scrutineer) and for speed events FIA harnesses must be in date .nik
  8. hi hope this helps nik This is from the MSA blue book Fuel Systems 5.13.1. Have any fuel lines passing through the driver/passenger compartment protected and, if nonmetallic, to be internally or externally metal braided hydraulic pressure hose or fuel lines complying with FIA specifications. 5.13.2. They may only be joined by screwed sealing joints or vehicle manufacturers approved joint. 5.13.3. If fitted with fuel fillers in a closed boot, or under closure, have collector/spill trays incorporated to drain outside the vehicle. 5.13.4. Use Pump Fuel (see definition Nomenclature and Definitions) except, subject to prior written authority having been given by the MSA, where permitted otherwise under event SRs, and Championship Regulations. 5.13.5. If using LPG, the entire system must conform with Construction and Use regulations and LPG Industry Technical Association Code of Practice No. 11. 5.13.6. If using non-pump fuel have a 3 inch diameter ‘Day-Glo’ orange disc affixed immediately adjacent to the Competition Numbers on both sides. (so is this just a case of making a box for this tank to be fitted inside with all feeds returns exiting through the floor of the vehicle ? can this box be a bolt together item so as to allow access to the tank when needed?) yes it can as this is now your boot Tank Fillers, Vents and Caps 6. Tank fillers and caps must not protrude beyond the bodywork or be situated within the driver/passenger compartment. The caps must have an efficient locking action to reduce the risk of opening during an accident and to ensure closing after refuelling (14.1.2). Air vents must be at least 25cm to the rear of the cockpit and must be designed to prevent the escape of fuel should the vehicle be inverted. It is recommended that a non return valve is incorporated in the vent system. The entire fuel tank area ‘Licked by the open air stream’ must incorporate a crushable structure as follows: the crushable structure bit is for single seater race cars 14.1.2. Fuel (a) Fuel Tanks and Pipes – every effort should be made to isolate fuel tanks and pipes from the driver/passenger compartment. The risk of fuel spillage from accident damage can be reduced by use of bag type tanks or by coating metal tanks with GRP. Tanks should be located so that they are given maximum protection by the structure of the vehicle. Vents should be designed to avoid spillage if the vehicle becomes inverted. (b) Fuel Fillers – these should be designed and located to reduce risk of damage. Filler caps should not be liable to open in the case of an accident. Simple screw caps are effective. The positive locking of the fuel filler caps is recommended. The filler pipe to the tank should be of minimum possible length and not protrude beyond the bodywork (6).
  9. hope this helps, by the way all three point harness' have been banned for speed events 57.2.1. All vehicles must comply with K.2.1.2, K.3.1.2 (not plumbed in), K.5, K.6, K.8. 2.1.
