PowerArt explains how the new mobility laws affect the classics

We are currently in a time of change regarding laws related to mobility. All this based on the provisions of the European directive on sustainable mobility, which has a direct impact on the municipal laws of town halls with more than 50.000 inhabitants. In this sense, many questions arise that are easily solvable if we go to specialized sources. The latest PowerArt video does, and so it is absolutely necessary to see it.

The use of new technologies has allowed better access to information. However, the reverse of the coin is reflected in the ease with which fears and fears find a loudspeaker on the networks. In this way, it is becoming more and more common to face heated debates where serene argumentation long ago gave way to fragmented data and virulent tone. A phenomenon that characterizes our era. Protagonist of the paradox between easy access to information and little interest in filtering its quality.

In that sense, it is advisable to pause and go to the sources before issuing a sentence or opinion on this or that subject. Especially when we get caught up in a crossroads of contradictory claims. Just what has been happening for some time now in relation to classic vehicles. More specifically at restrictions on use that the new regulations impose on any historical model or, simply, devoid of a certain sticker that ensures the suitability of its emissions.

For this reason, at this time, verified publications are of special interest. Precisely to avoid false fears such as the sense on the part of the fans regarding the legal future of the same. Obviously we are in a period of legal changes regarding sustainable mobility. This is why we must be attentive to speak with one voice in the defense of our vehicles, but also recognizing that "There is more noise than reality". One of the conclusions reached by Guillermo García in his video of the channel power art.


Accustomed to the immediacy of the headline or the publication in networks, it seems that 50 minutes of our time is too long to maintain attention. However, as fans of vintage models, the latest PowerArt channel post is well worth listening to. In it Guillermo García interviews Iván Vicario -Classic Cars-, Rafael Fernández -FEVA- and Javier Romagosa -Sergio Romagosa y La Escudería insurance brokerage-. All of them specialists from different fields in the situation of classic motorsport and historical in our country.

Through various interventions mounted on the basis of the explanations and narration of Guillermo García, the impact of the European directive on sustainable mobility is analyzed. A new legal framework translated into mobility laws that all municipalities with more than 50.000 inhabitants will have to approve. In them, low emission zones will have to be determined for which it is necessary to discuss the fit of older combustion vehicles. In this sense, the first conclusion to be drawn is that the limitations to the classics will be found in terms of access to city centers.

Not so with respect to the roads, where we can continue to circulate with total normality. Behind this situation is the disparity between the model established by Barcelona and the one chosen by Madrid. The latter was achieved after a negotiation between FEVA and the City Council, ensuring greater freedom of access as long as the historical registration is available. Another of the most pressing debates for the fans. Need to know exactly what are the advantages or disadvantages of this procedure.

In addition to these issues, the video opens an interesting debate on the legal situation that the so-called “youngtimers”. Too new to be treated as historic but far removed from the emissions limitations imposed on the latest models. A worrying limbo to legislate through the management of measures such as a possible new registration according to the FEVA spokesperson. That said, although we usually enjoy publications related to tests or motorsport history, it is well worth learning about the situation of our fans thanks to the latest PowerArt video.

Through the news from La Escudería, we will travel the winding roads of Maranello listening to the roar of the Italian V12; We will travel Route66 in search of the power of the great American engines; we will get lost in the narrow English lanes tracking the elegance of their sports cars; We will speed up the braking in the curves of the Monte Carlo Rally and we will even get dusty in a garage while rescuing lost jewels.
