So we had a new event this weekend where a bike's aftermarket oil filter popped (dumping oil into the belly pan) and only avoided disaster because the rider had already decided to exit the track. Very lucky. Our neighbour clubs down south have recently introduced rules banning aftermarket (external) oil filters. Personally, I thought we should consider doing the same, even before the latest event. Also, I think it would be wise for us to introduce rules for brake lever guards and sprocket guards (sharkfin guards). There are lots of cheap parts on ebay these days that work just fine. Obviously for next year since we are almost done 2017. Discuss!
