    Hi Mate,
    I live in qld and also have a JCW cup car.
    Would you have time to give me a PM.
    I am stuck and I need some help.
    Thx

    Ah yes, interesting question.
    1. The cars were all imported as dedicated race cars and hence not subject to tax and can never be complied for road use.
    2, The bits that you can see on the outside can be fitted to any stock JCW S eg the rear wing, diffuser and front lip. Would cost all up less than $4k to do and totally road legal. Stickers are $2.6k through MINI but you can get copies for around $70
    And finally:
    3. if it was a genuine with the killer exhaust, roll cage etc, then the rules are different in every state. In SA I have to swap out some items like the brake lines and take off the wing, diffuser etc, and fit a second seat, road tyres, narrower wheels etc etc and get my rally licence then I can apply to get it registered as a dedicated rally car.
    Best thing to do if you have one already is to speak to your local CAMS office and they can hook you up, otherwise but aftermarket copies and make it look like one on the outside

    Hi,
    Have a question in relation to registering a Challenge car as i saw you mentioning a few things in regards to it in the forum. Now I know that everyone says "you cant register a JCW challenge car", but i had someone pass me the other day in one. Wanted to catch him and ask him how but couldn't keep up, so unless he had swapped plates from a road registered version / done something dodgy it must be possible. (im in MELB) Anyway do you know what the apparent reason is as to why you cant register them... is it just that you need to fit horn, seat belts etc or is there more to it?
    Thanks, Scott.
