Banbury-based motorsport legends Prodrive went back to the drawing board to come up with a new roll cage design for the MINI John Cooper Works WRC car. Incorporating new materials, weld geometry and manufacturing processes the most notable change is the new configuration for the side impact bars, which curve outward – away from the occupants. This not only helps to provide more cabin space, but the bend actually helps withstand higher impact forces than the straight bars usually used in cage construction.
