I took a page from rx7locost and have a hitch mount built into my frame that utilizes two mounting points. My plan for the rear of the car is to fabricate two tie down points that use the two hitch receivers for the rear. All they will be are short sections of 1 1/4"" square tube with small loops on the end for mybstraps to latch to. On the front I have two loops welded on that I scavenged from a jaguar xjs that my dad was parting out. I will have to cone up with some sort of tow point for track events but like above they would probably use the roll bar or cage.

I like did something similar and welded in an 1-1/4 ID tube in the back. I did the same thing in the front and just triangulated my chassis around it. The tube in front and back where used together for my homemade rotisserie during my build. The rear one will be used for a hitch mount cargo rack to events, and for a tow hook on the track, that I hope never gets exercised.

A front hitch is handy when moving a trailer around on a small lot...
