if anyone wishes to discuss, question or understand these changes, just ask.

Basically, not much change for those of you that compete in speed events today.

Biggest change for racers is the "recommendation" for the use of wire tow eyes. Already several clubs have mandated this requirement for next season (BARC for one). long and short, those floppy webbing tow eyes will not be permitted (nor are the solid metal "oem road car" types as they protude too far). Whats more they are mandating 2 each end of the car. Even Demon Tweeks don't stock these, yet. Can see this being the "hans device like" money spinner for next year.
never thought I would want a list but now find myself needing one just to remind me: Clio V6 230, Clio cup racer (X85), Clio 200 (X98) clio 182 (X65) (Riku's), Renault sport twin turbo in Panorama blue (van), Spider (Xciting) Clio220 Trophy.

I know where to get them, just stating that it even has taken the industry a bit by surprise.

Yes, the MSA has a certain "knack" of passing rules that can be surprises to all.
