By definition, Sports Libre is a category designed to cover everything that does not fit elsewhere - a single seater by definition has open wheels - cover the wheels and it no longer fits that category, so gets put in Sports Libre.
Barmy, but that is how it is !
I was thinking there was something about central seating, but didn't manage to find it in the BB. That was why I was reluctant to think it was definitely Libre.
Thanks David

Rennny you need to read that blue book again.

There are two classes now.
Single seat sports racing cars and two seat sports racing cars.

Section 14.1 identifies 4 "Groups" of cars that "comply" with Sports Libre regulations. Once again I cannot over emphasise the MSA DO NOT specify classes.

Yes, see Section 14.1 (d)

I would guess it probably depends on how much Mini is in your car, if you were using any steering parts offset seating is easier, if it were a full space frame with single seater suspension, central seating would be the way to go, There is a GTM Coupe in Wales with a full space frame and GSXr engine using central seating, I have a couple of pictures of it at Llys y Fran I could mail you if interested.

the only mini in the car is a fiberglass body shell all steering and suspension is from a single seater but the main reason for central seat is weight distribution
