I cant help you much but i think one thing to consider with regards to mot/insurance is how are you going to get it to a track? are you going to drive it our trailer it

You will need to check with the track you are taking it to what their requirements are for track day cars. Obviously, most tracks won't let unsafe cars onto the track.
