I don't quite understand your second point, here's a GCF rollbar, it's similar to the TR Lane. Are you saying that the lack of rear triangulation wouldn't bother you?
Tbh, I probably trust the OEM fitted roll hoops more (which would have been tested at length by the manufacturer. I would be stunned if someone protested because you'd removed the hood to provide a more comprehensive (and heavier) safety bar.

There's a few Mk3s that compete already, is it worth tracking one of the owners down to see how they've managed?? Sandy Smith is pretty quick in his, but can't recall what he's done to the roll hoops, if anything (fairly certain he still runs with the hood in place).

I'm in a similar situation where I have a Fiat Barchetta. Would love to give it a go, but now resigned that it's just not possible with the car (no roll protection).
