I'll post what I can as soon as I can. The World of racing seems to be more back biting and politcal than even the tuning World so I'm only able to post up the information as I'm allowed to by the organisors (I'm not one of them, we're simply technical helpers for the VX220's).
Paul Golding at LOT and Simon Scuffham seem to be the men. There is a LOT / SELOC BBQ at Brands on Monday evening (26/06) when further is supposed to be revealed. Presumably the consequences of the meeting JT went to. While JT will obviously help the Vx fraternity as well as he can, the power resides with these guys to a great degree.

We'll be at Brands....with a VX220 race car. It'll be unfinished (no cage) but pretty much there I hope.
See you there JT (with this with luck):

I totally agree Ian. The Hillclimb/Sprint regs in the MSA blue book require a full cage for 2000cc+ cars in the Modified class. It is only advisory in lower capacity Modified and all Production classes.
I don't *think* I'm going to race on road tyres at those sort of speeds without a full cage: thats my choice and I don't care if the regs say less will do.
I wouldn't go near a race involving 30 similar cars capable of much higher speeds than you'd ever see on a hillclimb without one, even if it does add a little weight
Are some of the guys on LOT seriously considering racing at the weekend and retaining their car as a daily driver during the week? Other than cost saving, I can't see any ohter reason why someone would be reluctant to fit a full cage.
