B7 Garnet Ireland 4.2-liter displacement (255cu. in.) INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.

USAC's used at Indy, although t h i s s i z e e n r u l e s committee met hereTuesday gine a u l d s t i l l b e used on d i r t to make several far-reachlngrec- t r a c k s after 1967. ommendations for action by the *TO further encourage internaclub's board of d i r e c t o r s in Sept- tional interchange of d r i v e r s and ember. Among the items: c a r s through useof uniform limits, .The committee, by a 12 to 2 the committee voted a minimum vote, asked establishment of a weight limit on championship c a r s three-liter maximum engine dis- of 1100 ibs. after 1967, a f i g u r e beplacement (183 cu. in.) f o r cham- low that of any car at lndy this year. *The present 15-inch minimum pionship category paved track racing starting Jan. 1, 1967. This on wheel diameters for champtoncoincides with the new displace- ship c a r s was extended only thru ment limit for international G P 1966, possibly to allow f o r s m a l l e r racing which goes into effect Jan. s i z e s , currently popular inEurope. * sub-committee u,as formed A 1, 1977. It would doom thecurrent

-

to come up with a proposed rule to ban shrouded wheels such as those used on Mickey Thompson's c a r s this year. Thompson told the committee that wind tunnel tests Showed that the fenders on his c a r s produced only 50 pounds of lift on the front end, but in actualrunning it could possibly account for seve r a l hundred pounds of lift. *Among other proposals discussed as possiblities for reducing future tragedies due to fire were reduced fuel loads, several mandatory pit stops of 30 seconds each, mandatory fuel cells inside tanks the fastest

c a r s would be placed in front regardless of qualifying times. *Kenny Gime of T e r r e Haute, Ind., was asked t o h e a d a committee to study various types of racing fuel, how it is carried in r a c e c a r s , the effect of various amounts of handling andits effect on accidents, and to report back to the rules committee before September. .The rules committee recommended that red lights b e added to stop the r a c e in additionto theyellow caution and green lights now in use at every turn on thecourse. *The committee also heard expert testimony from Dr. Jay Wal-

ker of P u r e Oil Co., Ray McMahon of Mobil Oil Co., and Robert Carley of Humble Oil Co. on the relative dangers of gasoline over exotic fuels, if any. None would take on unequivical stand either way, the general concensus being that both had advantages and disadvantages and w e r e approximately equal in danger to a d r i v e r in a fire. All segments of the USAC racing organization were present for the meeting, including President Tom Binford, two-tlmelndy winner Rodger Ward and Andy Granatelli, owner of the Novi c a r s , to name just a few.
