Roll cage advice

Recommended Posts

I am curently building a 100" comp safari racer and almost at the stage of fitting a roll cage! Can anyone recomend supliers and what spec is required as I am a bit confused about if I can use blue band or not? It will be used for AWDC events!

Thanks

Sam

Hi Sam, there's a few of us local to you (Nailsea) who race with AWDC, and I know of someone else in Clevedon building and 100" comp safari racer.

If you are looking to buy a cage, or have one fitted, rather then build from scratch I would look at....

If you're looking at building then there is a lot of good info in the tech archive as white90 says.

You may already be planning to do so, but if you are starting from scratch, I would recommend making the cage MSA spec (or better) from the outset. Far easier than having to modify the cage later on.

Seems we do know the same person. Small world eh. The current car we race is CDS, but the old one that was rolled and is being rebuild is/was blue band, both are acceptable for MSA spec cages.
