    So excited! I used to do these track events all the time in Chicago (Road America, Gingerman, Blackhawk, etc.), but haven'd done this in forever. I hope to take my Coupe, if done from mini-restoration, but not drive it very hard, otherwise I will take my Porsche Cayenne Turbo S. Any other members going?

    Not sure if you read this in the "exciting news"

    "There are a few requirements to participate:

    Cars must have factory roll-over protection or have a roll bar if they are convertible"

    I would say our cars"do not" have factory roll over protection.
    There are strict helmet, non DOT, requirements.

    Not to rain on your race.

    You only need to have a rollover protection only if you are running a convertible.

    Just applies to convertibles. I have tracked many cars previously.

    No Convertibles without roll-over protection. Porsche Boxsters and 996, 997, & 991 Cabriolets have Factory roll-over protection. Earlier cars must add a Roll Bar or Roll Cage.
