Another annoying thing will be all the noise from the wind. No, really that is absolute nonsense.
Because it's safer (for the many reasons stated above). Kind of like wearing a helmet, which afaik you don't need to do at certain tracks in Europe either. You are correct that you get debris, aero is worse, and it is noisy But it's certainly not "nonsense".
