Rain lights will be manditory from 2015

Postby ypm76 » Tue Sep 16, 2014 2:28 pm

Rain lights will be mandatory for solos in 2015 - this was agreed by the ACU so applies to all ACU clubs.

You will need a working rain light fitted for technical inspection next year.

I dont think it will, as I don't think we run under FIA regulations, more info will come out when it's released by the ACU and/or Bemsee. I have bought a £12 LED rear light that a lot of people are already using.

The ones that are run at the TT cost £130 and are FIA approved.

Any idea when the specs for the rain light will come out. From a quick google sidecars are already using them.
