Re: Specials in Mono

As my last thread seems to have come happily to an amicable conclusion (albeit denying that pro teams are contrary to the true spirit of Mono and also hovering around the fact that everyone should have an allocated paddock space) how about this for a point of discussion?

F3 Cup will not be having garages either. Usually allocated at MSVR meetings to GT Cup.

Forty years ago in wet sump cars I have let two inches into the sump to increase the capacity for this reason and even in M...
