A few extra things to think about.
Good quality race seat and 6 point harness. Think about how you mount the seat, 40 year old fibre glass may not give you the most confidence
A quaiffe LSD may be needed in a plus 2 depending on how hard you want to make the suspension
Baffling for the engine sump
An uprated radiator if fitted with the original standard narrow 2 row design
A light weight sealed battery ( less likely to leak battery acid in high G manouvres).
Standard disks fine but with competition pads and competition fluid. A complete brake rebuild and installation of dual circuit system wise
Dont really see any need to change the steering rack but this is probably more a question of individual feel.
Stiffer suspension bushes help in a plus 2 more than 2 seat elan due to the longer suspension arms and I would definitely do.
Rear hub shafts and diff output shafts should probably be replaced. Front suspension stub axles and uprights should be crack tested
An infinite number of things you can do to the engine for more power but that can come later. All of the above items are really around handling stability, reliability and safety on the track.
