There may well be federal rules that apply to windshields, but normally the
FBI doesn't run around issuing tickets for equipment violations.
Which leaves you with the wildly varying state laws and regulations, which
are usually enforced only if you've been stopped for some _other_
transgression. If your "mostly race car" is already titled and registered,
the hard work is done - the rest is a matter of safe driving, common sense
and artful negotiation :-)
The most serious risk you run with driving behind Brooklands windscreens is
not a citation but getting hit in the face with debris thrown up by another
I used to test my Formula Ford on country roads when there was enough
moonlight for navigation, no competing traffic and no audience except for
dairy cattle, but that's a whole different story . . .
