Good afternoon all,

Can someone please confirm whether or not the Sprintspeed bubble arch kit is in accordance with FIA rules and regulations. I am in the process of getting a set, but only if I will be allowed to use it..

Helge

Have you asked Sprintspeed? They take part in motorsport themselves so they may know the definitive answer.

OK so you believe that they are too wide? I read that earlier, but can you provide the source of your information and what the measurements should be in order for them to comply? Thank you.

At first these are not homologated as in the FIA homologation form.

At second as Fia historic rally and race a Dolomite Sprint has to comply to the annex J of 1981. For gp2 the maximum with of the extensions can be 5cm max. and 10cm high max.

Hmm I wonder if the ones Alun sold me would work for you, they aren't Sprintspeed.

I'll measure them.

Thank you all for response. I might just as well be within regulations if I spend money, time and efforts..

Yes James, I would certainly like to hear from you if you have a more suitable alternative.

Have a really nice weekend.

Helge
