Rogue Motorsport are pleased to announce the development of a six point roll cage for the SW20 MR2. Primarily designed for competition use in the MR2 Challenge series, these cages will also be suitable for dedicated trackday cars.

The cage itself has been designed using the experiences of drivers competing in the MR2 Challenge series, and addresses the shortcomings of existing roll cages such as poor fit, lack of headroom and lack of seat movement. In order to engineer around the lack of space, the cage will require the removal of interior trim, and the front legs will pass through the heater vents on either side of the dashboard requiring it to be cut. The ability to use the standard seatbelt mounting positions is retained.

The cage is manufactured using a 3 axis CNC mandrel bending machine from 45mm cold drawn steel, which conforms to FIA specifications for roll cage material. Powder coated black, the cage attaches by it's six mounting feet and optionally via the seat belt pickups on the "B" pillar. Door bars are included.

Roll cages are priced at 587.78+vat and delivery.

Pictures added - sorry they're a bit dark! I'll post up better pictures this afternoon. The cage has exceeded our expectations in terms of fit, quality and available room!

Looks great.
Access seems like its gonna be very good too!

What would be the best option for harnesses with this cage? I'd initially looked at the twosrus strap brace, but that also connects to the top seat belt bolt. Would that render it useless do you know?

More pictures added to show the huge amount of space available for headroom and seat adjustment. The car shown in the pictures was tested yesterday at Silverstone (full GP circuit [Dancing] ) and the roll cage recieved very favourable reviews.

A deposit of 100.00 secures a roll cage with the balance required ahead of delivery in ~three weeks time. Anyone wishing to try the cage ahead of time is welcome to visit us and have a go!

The bolt-in / weld-in description can be a bit misleading. All roll cages require mounting plates welding into the chassis at the very least - bolt-in cages are then bolted to these are are removable. Weld-in cages become part of the chassis and can only be removed with an angle grinder!

Our cage attaches to the sill rather then the floor, so is obviously much stronger. This requires the addition of a weld-in plinth rather than a plate for the front legs. This is included in the kit.

We considered adding a bar like the one you linked to but rejected it for a couple of reasons. Firstly, we were concerned about the length and angle of the harness straps, and secondly it would add unnessecary weight to the cage. The rear firewall is double skinned and we use a spreader plate behind the eye bolt.

If you really want an extra bar adding, I'm sure it can be done (at additional cost).

Yes indeed, and provision for the passenger seatbelt is also retained. Movement of the passenger seat may be limited by the diagonal, but the cage was biased towards driver comfort. [Twisted Evil]

I've got a batch of ten arriving next week (including one in white) although more than half are currently allocated to MR2 Championship entrants. If you want one from this batch you need to get in touch sharpish!

Weight is in the region of 70kgs, perhaps a little more including the mounting feet and fixings.

Patrick

PS, If anyone fancies something a little less hardcore I have a secondhand Carbing cage that will fit with the standard interior available at 300 no vat.

Ten Roll Cages arrived this afternoon - over half have already been sold! With the MR2 Championship starting next month these won't last long so please order quickly if your requirement is urgent.
