The trunk has been modified to accept either the long range homologated reservoir (75 l may be) but more likely a second one, hence two filler caps.
Actual roll cages are much better, joining the two top suspension mountings and the floor. Mine is like yours, but full steel of course, and the rear part of the body is rather weak. If tubes are running through the bulkhead, any attachement must be not closer than 10 centimeters from the front strut mounting.Well, should not.

There is only 1 fuel filler the other is to get air out. 1 large tank.

Hold on though, a 300hp Gr1.5 Essex engine?! That's not original spec, the most those engines were capable of was 265 in '82, but I guess 'modern' metallurgy and engineering capabilities mean more is possible 🙄

Exactly. It's why my Rover struggles with many of them.

Hmmm, the various Goodwood specials may look lovely but it's not sport eh chap?

There will be platitudes galore for the 'period spec' Minis, Escorts, Fiestas and overpowered Capris from the organisers and commentators though. 😧

I'd say 305+ actually. Historic racing is a celebration not a sport I've been told. Your commentators have added at least one model to your list, the Golf. Or is it a Rabbit escaping really angry animals to be that fast?

Thinking about how fast they can breed…

I wish you all the best, James, for this new year. Thanks for the knowledge you like to share. Je bois à votre santé, si vous le permettez!

[OTopic] I can use fuel injection which would serve to equalize the power issue but since the car never ran with it in period (it was homologated) I've decided to avoid that route. Particularly as the only reason the Rovers were accepted was because I proved that they ran the IDA carb plus other things, in period. I believe A PMG Rover ran FI in 1982 but all it got was more torque not the 15BHP that the system now provides. [/Otopic]

Nonetheless I am not complaining since I've had the opportunity to share race tracks and podiums with some of my heroes and mates (Patrick Watts and Iain Rowley etc.). And we aren't too shabby either!

Yes that has been an upside I think!

Sold for around £68k. Not bad for a replica but I'd expect the build cost to be close to that anyway.

Not a bad buy at that! As you say, would likley cost that to have one built (to that standard) by a professional outfit. Hope the new owner uses it all season, and not just once in April.....

I've got a a Capri that is ready to be built up. Just ran some numbers and I don't think it can be done at that standard for less that £68k.

Remember 10 years or so ago when people used to show amazement (offence even!) that a blue oval race car such as an Escort or Capri could be worth as much (or more) than their Jag or whatever- ignoring that to a build any historic car from scratch was going to need the same amount of rare parts and same amount of labour.....
