Roll hoop specification for new cars

When constructing a new K Sports Chassis, it is important to note that by virtue of MSA Regulation Q.1, that Q.1.5.2 incorporating drawing Q31 must be respected as to tube dimension and in respect of the height in relation to the driver's head. 
Cars constructed prior to 1st December 2001 are able to claim 'exemption' on the basis of compliance with Q.1.5.4 (b), but henceforth cars must comply with 1.5.2. 
The reason for publication of this Notice is to ensure that new constructors do not fall foul of Safety Scrutineering rather than class eligibility. For obvious reasons of safety, all existing cars MUST comply with drawing Q31 in any event and competitors/preparers/entrants should check for compliance. A rollhoop extension is permitted and in the case of Mallock chassis, this is available from Mallock Sports. The addition of such an item, must otherwise comply with welding requirements of the MSA Regulations and must be of the same specification and material as the existing primary rollhoop.
