TWO engine builders have recently been caught in non-compliance of the regulations and the MSA have intervened.
Both outfits, who cannot be named for legal reasons, claimed that the engines they were selling had been inspected and approved by an MSA official.
A statement by the MSA reads: “Some engine preparers may claim that their engines have been inspected and approved by an MSA scrutineer, either prior to a race event or as a precursor to a sale. The fact is that no MSA Official endorses any engine products. A scrutineer’s function is primarily to ascertaining compliance with the relevant regulations at a race event.”
In short: the MSA don’t approve engines, so watch out for cowboys.
