Pre- What?

3

Does anyone remember pre-qualifying for teams who did not score points in the last half of the season?  When did that rule come to life and what other big engine rule came that very same year?

Was it the banning of turbo engines? I think they mandated 3.5 liter engines. That must have been about 1984?

I think gplegend is right about the banning of turbo engines, but it was 1989 before they were banned.

Wasn’t it in 1988? That year they limited the turbo pressure to 2.5 atmospheres – prior to banning turbos completely in 1989
