It does have a six point cage with diagonal but it's not MSA compliant as the tube diameter is to small, it was fitted to aid chassis stiffness more than anything.

Thanks for the info Biggles, good to hear that someone else is running a 'saloon' in the same class. That gives me the confidence to get on with the build over the winter and have some fun come spring.

I'm sure other things will crop up but it's good to know that this forum active & knowledgeable.

Now where did I put that welder.......

I live in Swindon so if there is anyone in the area that has experience of the class and it's regs I'd be grateful to hear from them.

I shall persevere for the time being and once I have a better understanding of what needs doing I'll make the decision on the power plant.
Unless you know of someone closer, I would suggest getting in touch with Dave Edwards in Bath. He has years of experience as a scrutineer, and is conversant with both the National and ASWMC regs.
You'll find his contact details in the Blue Book, or drop me a pm.

Cheers!

I have a contact for a custom made cage. Just had one made for my son in laws 160 ZR. Not as expensive as you may think and if you are a welder then he is happy to supply the cage only.

Happy to talk and am down the road nr shepton mallet.

Is it a Rover 620 turbo engine, or is it a 2.0 engine from an MG ZR with a turbo fitted? I believe the latter could be allowed under the "induction is free" reg.

Thanks Ben I'll give you a call once I've got a plan for the cage.

It's the 620ti motor Carl so Libra it is.

Was the Rover 2.0 block never fitted to the MG ZR then?

Unfortunately not, only variants of the K series.

I thought the T series block was the same as the diesel block fitted in Rover 25 / 45 cars , regs state easily identifiable , no reference to fuel type , I fell foul of same rule mind with a Daewoo Nexia fitted with a Vauxhall Redtop so I could be ( and often am !) wrong
