I am trying to put together the information needed to have the Z30 series included in Group 3J for improved production racing.
One of the tasks is to have the standard interior measured. I don't have access to a Soarer with a standard interior, so I am looking for volunteers to measure the following:
The dimensions to be checked (in cm) are:
B. Height over the front seats (measured between 0° and 15° towards the rear in relation to the vertical).
C. Width for the front seats.
D. Height over the rear seats (measured under the same conditions as B).
E. Width of the rear seats.
F. Distance from the centre of the hub of the steering wheel to the brake pedal (if the steering wheel is adjustable it must be placed in the median position).
G. Length from the centre of the hub of the steering wheel to the bulkhead of the rear seat, or if possible to the rear face of the rear seat (maximum tilt 15°). If the steering wheel is adjustable, it must be placed in the median position.
B and D are measured between the bottom of the seat and the ceiling (padding compressed).
If the seats are separate, the measurement is taken in the middle of each of the seats.
In case of longitudinally adjustable seats, the seats will be placed in the median position.
C and E are the maximum widths measured along the vertical plane passing through the axis of seats, being able to be freely maintained over a height of at least 25 cm and a length of at least 40 cm.
The minimum dimensions (in cm) according to the cylinder capacity (in cc) are the following, with H = F+G:
The main one I need confirmation on is D, but I would like all the dimensions.

I have to admit I looked at the list of measurements needed how they are to be measured and became overwhelmed.
I am building a bathroom this week after hours and on the weekend. If I need a rest from that, I'll try and get some for you. I take it these measurements are with all the factory stock in the car?
Yeah, it can be a little confusing, but if you read it sitting in the car with the tape it becomes clear.
And it has to be measured with all the stock stuff in the car.
Peter, there is nothing that says what the seat height should be. If it is more than 93cm at the highest setting then there will be no problem! Otherwise going for the median position would fit in with what else they are saying.
