Question Jack's in Round Britain?

Why are jacks not allowed in the RB11? surely the gorilla jacks are more than up to the job... afterall they are cookee proof

Anybody know why they aren't aloud if the likes of the gorilla jack is more substantial than a heavy duty offshore saddle from mercury?

They obviously don't replace the saddle but rather extend it backwards and this can put extra stress on the saddle when landing a jump at an angle (sideways) - not sure if this is the reason though.

Besides the performance gains would be unlikely to alter a result - it's more about consistency!
