I also looked around, the only data i found was on the highgate project v4 page. Some pics but no data...
But if you find anything please post it here...
I'm building a rally/track car for the road... just for cool lookings, must be X-treme :D :)

He's a regular poster on the vSAAB mailing list.

Right it will say what homologation you can run and it no doubt for the earlier cars refer to Appendix K ? which is a masive document from the FIA that covers international historic racing and rallying (you can down load it). For the period homologation of the v4 you can consult the Sport and rally book, otherwise contact the Saab museum for details.
Chis Partington races a 2 st in Group 1 touring car club races in the UK and there is a class in Sweden that 2 st run in. You need to contact XP power, who are at the heart of the 2 st racing in Sweden. Dave barrow is also meant to be building a HSCC spec car.
You can run in Top Hat, Group 1 touring car club, or HSCC (as seen at Oulton)with a 2 st.
