Question about Headlights - Rule 9.9.2 Specifically

Hi all! 

Working on building our Car and we came across a rule that we would like some clarification on. 

Rule 9.9.2 states "All Cars must be equipped with suitable headlights. Headlights may be OEM or aftermarket. Cars having more than (4) light sources mounted on the car, whether working or wired for use, will be required to COMPLETELY REMOVE all lights above the count of four (4)."

Our question(s) are this: 

Is this referring to forward facing lights ONLY or is it 4 light sources on the exterior of the car in total (tail lights included in that number). The other question, related to the first, is if interior and exterior "work" lights are counted towards this. By "work" i mean lights on a switch for use ONLY when in the pits and or paddock. 

We are wanting to put fog lights on the car for aesthetic reasons. This would put 4 total lights on the front of the car. 

Any help and/or clarification would be much appreciated!

Thanks!

Kyle

We have removed the 4 bulbs from our headlight housings as we do not use them.   Those are what we determined the light source was.   We left the housings for aesthetics .   Replaced with 4 LED's

Master switch must be off when fueling and hard wired interior lights can not work then .  Some use a separate flash light mounted to the top but you need to tell your pit marshall cause if they see a light on in the car they will think your main switch is still on and demand you stop fueling ..

IMO, I would not waste two of your allotment on fog lights. We run a pair of HID projectors retrofitted into stock housings, and two LED apex lights.

For your first race the fog lights may look cool and appealing but they wont function much. My vote would be for 2 main lights in the middle then an apex light for each corner of the front of your car. 

 

This was our first race with 4 Hellas
