This must have been posted here before but I stumbled on the FIA Homologation filing today and was surprised by the amount of detailed information it contains, drivers seat weighs 13.6kg or the full camshaft profile dimensions interest anyone? ... roup_1.pdf

Current fleet: Triumph Dolomite Sprint '75, Daihatsu Fourtrak, Honda CG125, Yamaha Fazer 600, Shetland 570

Disposal fleet: Golf GTi 16v MK3 Anniversary

Past fleet: Triumph 2000, Lancia Beta Coupe, BL Mini Clubman, Austin Metro, Vauxhall Cavalier MK1 & MK2, Renault 18 D, Rover 216 GSI, Honda Accord (most expensive car purchase, hated it on pickup from dealer, was made out of magnetic metal as only car I've ever been crashed into, 4 times), Golf GTi MK3 16v x 3

I've been using the stuff off this site for a while. There're also pdfs of the old Appendix J rules for homologation that show what was required to get what approved, what was mandetory and what was optional, etc. I've mostly been into Appendix J 1975 and 1976, cos they apply to the inital Group 4 approvals for the 16-valve TR7 and re-approval of the Sprint head after the big rule change of 1976 (effective from the end of 78 for existing approvals). There are also PDFs for the historic rallying rules, etc.


The 16v Slant 4 engine is more fun than the 3.5 V8, because you mostly drive it on the upslope of the torque curve.

Factory 1977 TR7 Sprint FHC VVC 697S (Now all of, but still needs putting together)
B&Y 73 Dolomite Sprint UVB 274M (kids!)
1970 Maroon 13/60 Herald Convertable (wife's fun car).
