Looks like it's meant for the older engines that have the windage trays incorporated in the pan. Using this in conjunction with the Series 2 gasket would cause 2 potential issues: additional layer of sealing for leak possibilities all around the base of the block, and move the oil pick-up screen slightly higher from the bottom of the pan and slightly increasing risk of being above the oil level.

For best sealing results, I typically apply a thin layer of Ultra Grey RTV around the raised bead on the gasket, each side to be thorough.
