Porsche 968 for full-on competition use. Note braces tying front down tubes and main loop to body. The sun roof doesn't do much for stiffness so this additional connection does much to stiffen the whole structure.
Substantial door X has further reinforcement. The main front tube goes deep into the foot well so an additional upright tube adds strength at the a-pillar. Porsche 968 roll cage.
Back braces with X tubes and seat belt mounting tube, the link between the main loop and the B-pillar can just be seen. Porsche 968 roll cage.

We had this Porsche 356 in for some additions to the existing roll cage. The FIA have now mandated that classic sports cars should have 6 point roll cages, and this car was previously fitted with a 4 point cage. We updated the existing cage to 6 point and added in door bars and a dash bar too, keeping everything bolt in as originally intended. We are very happy to add to or modify existing roll cages, providing they are up to spec, and we can carry out an assessment on an existing roll cage which includes accurately measuring the diameter and thickness of the tubing with our ultra-sonic measuring equipment, checking welds for quality and assessing mounting locations to make sure they meet the requirements of the rules for the type of racing the car will be entered in
