17" aerospeed rsgts(off the white astra till i can pick up either a set of astra sport wheels or some 15" rally style 1s idealy in white)
erm system well
panasonic cd player and some 350watt 6x9s standard door speakers dont matter anyway it wont have a system soon.
mods 2 come are:
strip everysingle thing out door cards even the heating
roll cage
15" wrc style wheels
rally mudflaps only on the front though
full exhaust system
suspension(not sure wat though yet need regulations sorted)
1.6 top end
bucket seats
air filter/induction kit
no debagdging or bodykit everything lefgt as it should be even rear badges saying astra and vauxhall

You can rally with any car as long as it has three or four point harnesses and a fire extinguisher.
Lombard do a rally with 1.4 engines for anyone to join, and you have to use Matador tyres.
Everything else has to be standard though.

Your refering to "Road Stage sprints" which is hardly rallying. You also need a fire-proof suit for sprints.......

Your vehicle must be scruitineered for MSA (Motorsport Assosiation) rallying which consists of various safety aspects such as plumbed in fire extinguishers, roll cage etc etc.....

You are best off regidtering with a local rally association to gather all the info as its very involved indeed mate.

Good luck anyways happy
