|Initially, the Motor Sports Council had considered their introduction appropriate from 1 January 2008 in terms of safety – hence the inclusion of General Regulation G131 in the 2008 Yearbooks.
However, the MSA now understands that the FIA is considering its own review of the subject. As a result, the MSA has deferred implementation of G131 until at least 1 January 2009 and will continue to monitor and review the issue in the meantime.
Competitors are asked to note that the 2007 Regulations J 20.14.8. and Q5 (now C(c) 69 to 71 in the 2008 General Regulations) remain in effect.
