Possible Rule Conflict

9.22. AERODYNAMIC DEVICES
     9.22.1. Aerodynamic devices not to exceed width of OE
     bodywork (fenders, bumpers, doors) when viewed
     from above. Note: Side mirrors are not included in
     bodywork width. 

The question is , are fender flares considered aerodynamic aids? If so they can not exceed the original fenders.

Um....  what would the point of fender flares be if they didn't stick out?

 

Most of the fender flares I have seen in this series are not exactly the most aerodynamic.

 

F3nder flares are there to prevent tire to tire contact that can result in roll overs.

No, fender flares are not considered aerodynamic. 
 

If you were to attach some winglets to your flares, expect to remove them before being allowed on track.

To be clear to the original poster, that was the stated intent of the rule. Almost every fender flare you will see in this series will not prevent wheel to wheel contact, but they will meet the rule. There are only 3 reasons you will see fender flares in this series, to meet the rule, aerodynamics, and/or somebody thinks they look cool.

Or they came on the car!
