Sports Libre, like James said, you'll need a 6-point cage.

Section S will be a bit of bed time reading i suspect,

The more developed a car is for competition, generally the worse it is for the road. In speed events, the Road-going class is a good compromise of both, but you won't be able to run in it with the GM engine.

Just decide what you want, a modernised road car, or a competition car. Or maybe one of each?

I've made a decision. Its going to be one of each. I have more than enough decent paraphernalia to build a road going class dedicated, 5a.

The GM conversion is going very well, so well its drawing me into other ideas such as turbocharging so maybe just keep those ideas for the orange car and keep the sprinting ideas for the udder car.
