Driver Protection Rule

So, whilst reviewing the rules to make sure I'm legal and ready for Loudon, I come across this.
Section 6: SRA “Lost Era” (Modern F2-style) Technical Rules, Chapter 5 – STREAMLINING AND BODYWORK

5. There must be effective protection between the driver and engine to protect the driver from contact with fuel, oil or flames.
What constitutes "effective protection between the driver and engine to protect the driver from contact with fuel, oil or flames"? Do I need to modify my P3?

On my old TZ that was called "leathers". It used to backfire through the carbs occasionally which had flames bouncing off my crotch.

I wouldn't worry about it for Loudon. The SRA executive can get together there and discuss it. In my opinion many of the P3 era bikes had little or no bodywork between the driver and motor. Just try to throw your con rods out the "FRONT" of the engine or perhaps before the pipes get warm enough to ignite anything ;-)

maybe I'll toss in a cod piece/groin cup for extra protection! :roll:
