Technical changes for Honda Cadet in 2016
Honda Cadet will see a few rule changes for 2016, particularly on the technical side.
There is a mandatory requirement for a fuel non-return valve fitted on the fuel tank breather pipe, to help prevent fuel leakage and fires. Search on EBay for “fuel non-return valve”, they are only a few pounds and are used in many car formulae.
A new type exhaust is proposed for the class, it will be optional from 1st January and mandatory from 31st March. Target price is around £100 and it should help to level up the playing field from the multitude of exhausts manufactured in different factories.
The Honda GX-160 Technical Regulations are having an extensive re-write to incorporate eligibility measurements using a new tool set which will be available to scrutineers. The tool set target price is £100 but it is hoped that MSA and ABkC Club Development funds could help with the purchase.
A group has been formed to publicise and support the Honda Cadet class which has been welcomed by the ABkC who are the class owners. A new place will be made on the ABkC Steering Group for a representative. They plan a website and Facebook Page.
