Posted - 06/12/2012 : 17:47:56 An entry-level novice driver will always have an in-car instructor providing coaching. So, there is a necessity for the car configuration to provide an appropriate level of safety for the right-seat riding instructor. Thus, the category of cars that are "Lotus 7" replicas, are not considered suitable for use by a novice driver, because those cars do not provide minimum safety protection to the right seat passenger.
Owners of such cars that have done safety improvements over and above the original specifications should provide details to us for consideration of special exceptions. Such improvements would have to include wrap-around side impact protection bars, among other things...
