I had decided that I wanted a track day roll cage in my Renault Clio V6. After discussions with Scott at SG Motorsport it was agreed that a roll cage would be ordered and customised to my requirements.

The Renault Clio V6 roll cage was ordered from Safety Devices and this consisted of a rollover loop with backstays that mounted on top of the rear suspension mounts. There was also an additional diagonal to add extra rigidity to the structure.

Scott then made a custom harness bar using FIA conforming tubing. The custom harness bar also included a mount for my GoPro camera. I visited Scott a couple of times during the construction and installation to ensure that everything was measured up correctly. The finished roll cage was then painted in Illiad Blue.

Scott said the final installation was very difficult and the side rear engine covers had to be cut to accommodate the roll cage backstays. I had managed to obtain a spare set of engine covers from a Clio V6 that had been in an accident and was being broken up for parts.

To finish off the installation I purchased two sets of race harnesses from Sabelt, which were in blue. The seat belts, which did not really work with the Recaro Pole Position Seats due to the long buckle getting in the way, were removed. The end result is amazing. The harnesses hold you in place and really help you feel more connected to the car.
