2.4​ ​ Bodywork​ ​ and​ ​ Fairing

Message par Bro-Colli le 2017-11-03, 12:55

Hi,

We were wondering how to interpret rule 2.4 : "the face of the pilot remains exposed".
Is it allowed to have a fairing placed in front of the face of the pilot, while the sides remains exposed (see figure)?




Kind regards,

Fairings must be transparent or you have to use a radar (but I'm not sure they are allowed in Russia near military zones) or a dog guide. geek If they are transparent, the face of the pilot should be visible.

The rule concerns mainly velomobiles where the pilot is sometimes totaly enclosed in a "cockpit".

Good Answer Michel.

The SunTeam confirm this point : as long as people can see the face of a human beeing it will be alright...
A fully enclose cockpit with a solar roof at 5 cm above the head : no

Our advice is start riding and testing now.
Even if the fairing and aerodynamics aren t ready, do it and learn. (ask the team leuven about it ..)
the theory and the bike that won't fail you , are about 500 to 1000kms apart each other

cheers
