My series one Lotus Seven has its racing number from the 1960s in place. I
will leave it. It does not matter what you think or your silly race group for
that matter ;^). I am betting that the racing group is too snooty to hang
around anyway. I guess that I will go and enjoy my pretend race car now -
meatballs, numbers, and all.
You will be happy to know that my series two Seven America does not have its
original SCCA race numbers. I have done some preservation work on it. Don't
worry that pretend race car will have its original numbers shortly as well.
You're the best.

Subject: [Spridgets] Racing cars displaying numbers on the public highway
MSA Blue book regulation J4.17 states: Any means of identifying
individual cars during a competition MUST be removed at the finish of the
Also MSA Blue book regulation Q11.1.1 states: Competition numbers must be
covered at all times when driving on the public highway.
I think that pretty much makes it clear that no racing car (but not rally
car) displays racing numbers when being driven on the road. However, while
a racing car no longer used for racing clearly could display a racing
number on the public highway none ever do because there would be no better way
to say 'this car is just pretending to be a racing car".
