Handicap the mods




I thought Simon Taylor’s interview with Max Mosley most interesting. If MM has his way there are some sinister undercurrents looming for a part of the motoring scene which is currently un-fettered by regulations applying to other branches of motorsport, F1 in particular.

I agree that old should be old, but safety should come first.

Perhaps there should be a handicap system where the 250F Maserati fitted with disc brakes or a modern replica should be handicapped accordingly — not easy, but it would perhaps slow the headlong rush to crank up development to remain competitive, and the accompanying spiralling costs.
