Spitfire side air vents

Hello list.

Due to our regulations I must change my glassfibre bonnet to an original
steel-type. It's OK to put side vents in it though, and I know the works
did it back then, apparantly for better under-bonnet temperaturs. But I'd
rather not.

Then Russ Moore was kind enough to send some photos of his Spitfire, and I
noticed that he doesn't have vents in. After checking the Spitfire gallery
on the fot-site it seems that most of the American Spitfires do without
the vents.

Now my questions is: Are you running some trick radiators, ducting or
other stuff under your bonnets in order to race without vents, or are the
vents just not necessary?

Best regards
