Looks great! - but as usual the MSA have some quirky rules (which never make much sense)....

Your rear spoiler looks like it is above the roof line - not permitted.

Brake balance adjusting controls cannot be accessible whilst driving.

5 point or 6 point FIA harnesses required, as will be a Frontal Head Restraint as you will be in Sports Libre.

You already know about the firewall for the fuel tank and the external kill switch.

For speed events a fire extinguisher is not required but is advisable.

Is your roll cage an approved/certified one (without modifications)?
If it is a one off - do the mandatory members meet the requirements in the MSA Year Book for the relevant Sports Libre Category?

Have I missed something ? The only reference I can see is that it is RECOMMENDED that extinguishers are serviced to manufacturer's intervals.

What a great car.
I think you will need a Nat A Open to run in over 2000cc Libre?
Look forward to seeing it in my class!

Where is the requirement to have the fuel tank seperated from the passanger compartment? I know it makes sense, just can't see it in the BB. The filler has to be external, I can see that, just not isolating the tank.

The tank can be put in the space used for the spare wheel as some owners do but it must be covered with metal (this would be a bulkhead). The filler does not have to be external and can be direct onto the tank provided that it is covered ie, A flap to lift up to get to the cap....GrahamB fitted a fine example to his Fiesta...... I'm sure if he reads this he will post a photograph.....

What an absolutely beautiful piece of engineering.

As has been said, my approach would be to go road legal with a Nat 'B', get some signatures to be able to use the car on slicks. During the journey, some time to ask the friendly blue-shirted MSA officialdom what you have to do for Sports Libre, log booking and anything else. If the answers aren't entirely consistent, some of us wouldn't be entirely surprised...

That's stunning!

My only advice would be don't get married and concentrate on the car and racing! Only Joking of course.

Just looking at this fab car again..
MoT with hydraulic hand brake?
I would get prepared with a Rops certificate or some details when Log Booking is undertaken.
Looks as professional as Mike Edean's Puma, lovely car, and you can see the 7 years of work in it.
Pity you are so far south, you need to come to the Midland venues!

If you go to the Lydden (Sat July 15th) event you might be able to get some advice from the friendly men in blue shirts on the day, regarding things to change on the car.

Still only halfway through the season, no reason you couldn't start this year (apart from the wedding etc )
