About damn time, if you ask me. Unfortunately it won't take effect until 2018, if it is approved. Between this and the allowance to reinforce bodywork, maybe we'll see a resurgence of Lotus in street classes.
Also embedded in the Fastrack:
#15730 Non-factory/Non-standard Body Reinforcement Allowance Proposal The SEB recommends the addition of a new paragraph to 13.1, as follows:
“Front bumpers, rear bumpers, body trim pieces and attachment points may be reinforced to prevent or repair damage from hitting cones. Reinforcements that are not visible to the exterior of the car are allowed. Such repairs and/or reinforcements may serve no other purpose.”
