If anyone left them in, why?

.. if you notice it has some slots cut in it. I figure this helps channel some air from that duct into the air box which has an inlet from that side duct.

Cheers,

.. I think I would rather have air go to both than mostly to the brakes. On the track, you might want to take them both off for max cooling. Another thing to maybe try would be to put a small elbow duct to grab extra air for the airbox and then take the slotted cover off. But I think you might be putting some effort to realise small - maybe negligible - gains. Having said that, on a real cold frosty night, that elbow might give you a few HP.

Cheers,
Frank.
