Looking for a roll cage for a MK III 1989 Supra.

Any suggestions?

Has to be MSA compliant for circuit racing.

Thanks

Yeah but then you have to get it certified which will cost about as much as getting it fab'd by someone who can certify it and fit it.

Just google for custom installers who are qualified to certify it.

As above, show us some pics of your track car. Where are you racing/what events?

you have to get them certified to. that is a new on by me. I was just going off of what i know by the states. there before you enter something they have people that will look over your car and decide if it is worthy for the competition that you are entering or not. glad you said something could of put him in a worl of pain. My bad lol:notworthy:notworthy:notworthy:notworthy

It depends what you're entering. Some track days you don't need a cage so you just rock up and go. If it's a proper series then you'll probably need a tagged/certified cage to enter (and a load of other safety jazz).

But I'm no expert...

I still have the Cusco one, but the saga of it on here is well known. For quick reference, its been chopped in half.

MSA regs basically prohibit the dash dodger style cages - some of the bolt in cages from the likes of safety devices etc have a front upright that goes past the dash, with no bends.

I think your best bet is to go to customcages.co.uk and ask them to build you one - I think it'll cost around 2k to have it fully fitted - they also do some general purpose clubman cages which have msa certification, they provide roll over protection but may not hug the lines of the car as well as afully designed one

Speak to Nick at Nickson Motorsport - he does mine, brilliant job & a fair price too

The car is to run in Classic Sporst Car Club future classic series, which is open to sports, GT & saloons of a type available from 1970 to 1989 inclusive.

I will be in the non-turbo up to 3 litre class, so will probably struggle against the Porsche 944 and 911, although a lot of these cars will probably go to the new Deutsche Marque series that caters specifically for German cars available from the '90s onwards.

Not sure what rounds I will run in as I am also the coordinator for the Swinging Sixties series where I run a Sabre Six

i don't know anything about msa regs, but you can choose if your cusco cage is a dash dodger or not, so you may be able to get one that meets the regs. obviously the bolt in will not offer the protection of something like the nickson above
