not a direct answer to your question, but in the past on my first VL wayyyy back in 2004ish, i fitted an autotechnica reclining seat into my VL by using the existing rails, and i had to grind off the side bits that fit around the factory seat and then used 2x strips of steel which i bolted to the seat and then to the factory rails. That left me with the factory sliding as well.
I currently have VS Caprice seats in mine, the guy i bought them off welded the caprice rail or upper rails to VL lower . I believe the late model VL's had detachable rails from the seats that would be what you would want, but i doubt you will find a bolt in kit... prob need to get some metal and drill some holes

Edit : just re-read your question, and seems you might be after some more detail re. racing rules... sorry for jumping the gun, you prob know all of what i just said.

Can't use VL rails, need to make new brackets.
