Racing pigeons are in the news after a series of incidents in recent seasons, and while it’s easy to point fingers at the drivers, the sport’s governing body has a lot to answer for.
This year, the FIA’s race regulations were amended to prohibit a car from racing in a certain way if it was using its own fuel.
If a car is using a fuel from another car, the rule says it must stop and take control of the car before it can take the other car’s fuel.
If a car uses the same fuel but is competing in another category, the car can race in that category, too.
The rules also state that the rules “require that any racing in which a car has an equal share of fuel and that is competing for the same prize as the competitor in the category in which it is racing must be stopped immediately and taken to the pits and used only for that racing.”
The rule also says that “if a competitor uses a car or a combination of cars for racing purposes, the driver who controls the competitor must use all available means of control including driving and braking.”
The FIA did not respond to a request for comment.
