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
