Ours is just inside the lower air intake.
It would have to be a serious bit of debris to put a hole into an K&N type filer. They do have a metal gauze which suspends the filter material.
Water ingress is also very unlikely unless you drown the filter.
Have you ever seen this on a real race car? I would be interested to know because we are not aware of anything like this and we have a large number of race cars running some of our software and hardware running open filters subject to the elements.
