2004 Sportcross Emergency Tow Locations! - Track Day

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I have a 2004 IS Sportcross that I'll be tracking for fun. Nothing serious, just a little hobby I've always wanted to start.

First day event is the indy circuit at Brands Hatch next month. Car is completely standard.

I need to fit tow eyelets/hooks onto the car front and back in case the car needs recovering.
I've looked in the boot and the moulding has shapes of where I guess the eyelets would have been but obviously not there anymore.
Even if they were there, I wouldn't know where to put them as the car doesn't have those little square cutouts to reveal the thread to screw into.

Under the front and back of the car, I can see what look like locations to attach a hook to pull the car, however they don't protrude enough to clear the bumpers if a rope was attached.
Therefore when pulling the car from these points, it would press against the bumper unless the mounting point from the recover car was just as low. 

Does anyone know if there are other towing points on the car? Ideally ones I can buy an eyelet for and screw into?

Many thanks!
