Now here's a question for you:

If a Touring, or other shell, that has the motor enclosed is used, should they be allowed to remove the whole windshield?

I think they should so they can have equal cooling to an Lola style shell.

Well i think 2 things here...

1, if the front window of a touring car is completely removed for better cooling, then surely that would ruin the effects of downforce as i expect the air pressure on the windscreen will be quite high at that point in comparison to the rest of the body. (correct me if im wrong)

2, all 1/1 touring cars race with windscreens in.

also all 1/1 cars have solid windshields and no holes in the roof.

keeping the windshield in place will mean having to run the motor richer, thus giving it less performance.

You do not have to cut out the windshield, it is an option.

Oh! and I have just remembered a rule in the Aussie V8 Supercar rules:
"If the windshield is removed, then the rear window must also be removed"

True.

Fair enough.

does'nt realy bother me either way,i just thought that the loss i downforce would have been a bigger loss on performance.

Oh! and I have just remembered a rule in the Aussie V8 Supercar rules:
"If the windshield is removed, then the rear window must also be
removed"


well i suppose if the rear window was left in, it would be like towing a parachute.

It is actually a safety rule, 'cos the pressure inside can blow the rear window out, into the path of a following car.

The incident I remember this from was Peter Brock in the 05 Mobil Commodore and Bathurst after he hit a Kangaroo smashing the windshield, he was black flagged and had to come in and remove the back window.
I have it on DVD, but cant remember which year, somewhere between 1960 and 2001.
