Here you can see all the crossbracing that went into the cage's center hoop. Also visible here is the 26-gallon ATL fuel cell, which is being test-fit in the cage. Skilton predicted the Honda's V-6 would get only about 8 mpg in race conditions (half its EPA City rating); even if it's worse than that, the fuel cell's capacity should easily get him between gas stops at the BFGoodrich pits, which are 140 miles apart in Baja.
