Spelling of "Super Licence"[edit]

The web address name of the article uses "Super License" but the actual article uses "Super Licence". Can we at least have some consistancy here... which is it? Graybriggs 15:22, 21 October 2006 (UTC)

The PDF of Appendix L to the ISC (linked from the article's external links section) has "Super Licence" and "Super licence". Majin Izlude talk 20:34, 8 November 2006 (UTC)
Argh! It should be "license," not "licence." It's only referred to incorrectly in the PDF as "licence" b/c the FIA doesn't translate English properly. Azx2 19:17, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
Er, no. In British English (in which this article is written), "license" is a verb and "licence" is a noun - see http://www.future-perfect.co.uk/grammartips/grammar-tip-license-licence.asp for further information. Also, regardless of the variety of English used in the article, when quoting a reference (including the reference title), the spelling should exactly match that used in the reference.

Licence to print money[edit]

How do teams get their Super Licences to qualify to participate? TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 21:07, 28 October 2010 (UTC)

Additional sources needed[edit]

This article stub needs some additional verifiable, reliable sources (of which I'm sure there are thousands). I just edited the section on the cost of the super-license and added two additional references to the same BBC article that the section was basically plagiarized from w/o being appropriately cited. LAZY! Come-on, people! Don't plagiarize stuff and not give credit and pass off an entire BBC article as your own work... Azx2 18:33, 17 February 2013 (UTC)
