I am looking to confirm my interpretation of the GCR Prod Rules on dry sump tank mounting. Unlike the GT rules which specifically call for an enclosure, the Prod rules do not. At least I cannot find any such requirement. It only says it must be mounted inside the bodywork, and if it is above the 6-in door line then it has to be completely within 18-in of front or rear cowl (and no part can be above the cowl). That's it. Nothing about having to use a container or bulkhead around the tank. Am I correct? Please Note: Not asking about good racecar building practice or what is "smart" or safer! I'm only asking if my interpretation of the rule is correct! :) Thanks!

Possibly an oversight for the Prod rules given that GT & ST rules do require a bulkhead for dry sump tanks?
But under the general rules for all cars in section 9.3.37 (page 83) it states "Oil holding tanks and oil filters may be mounted in
the driver/passenger compartment. A metal bulkhead shall prevent exposure of the driver to oil spillage."

Greg, thanks! Or, should I say, 'tanks! I couldn't find a rule on this using "dry sump" as a search term in the GCR.
