Sounds like you are on the right track. Since your 297 miles is at speed, focus on the aerodynamic stuff and don't spend $ on weight reduction. If you're really handy, try lowering the seat and cutting the windshield and top of the doors down to go with the fastback canopy. Heck, put a metro body on the Samurai chassis!
Good design is simple. Getting there isn't.
