    Looks like something to effect the tread on the tyre under hard cornering?

    That was my thought. See it a lot at stock car racing except they use a glove to clean them with between races.

    Thats to flatten small animals when you run them over so as not to damage the paintwork as they go round.

    All the cars have them fitted, they are there to clear the tyres of Steve Neal's bull$hit!

    He got Matt Jackson peanalised in race 3 because his son, Matt, hit him in the first race at Brands.......Matt Neal and Gay Gordon have never hit any one have they?
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!
