Formula Type Steering wheels

Are there any restrictions on steering wheels which have the top missing like this Sparco

I thought you have to have a full wheel
I’ve seen one with the top portion missing and that had been “filled” with a machined piece of Ali
But I could be mistaken !

D shaped are permitted but anything with a reflex angle looks like a no no. Page 148 of the 2018 BB has some info

Pretty sure the bb says must be one continuous loop.
I used to use a momo 12c and got pulled once at aintree.
I think empire use them but bill machines a billet ally block to take the gap

Interesting, so why do Sparco et al sell them if they are not legal?

Single seated failed scrutineering with one at Castle Combe last March. Presumably OK for track days etc but would a road car pass an mot with one fitted?

Because they are legal under other non-msa regulations.

Yes, looks like it. I'm sure I've seen Formula type cars with this type of wheel.
