Arguably the most beautiful track in the US, it’s great to hear they do permit convertible that meet certain requirements (similar to NASA events).

Requirements:
  • Convertibles must have roll bars (a fixed roll bar and not just the emergency roll-over type.)
  • Driver's helmet must be below the roll bar and windshield. Ideally, there is a 2" clearance (i.e., "broomstick test.”)

Ha, right? I actually had two girls this weekend tell me they didnt realize there was such a thing as hard top convertibles.

For those that have never raced, its worth mentioning that you'll likely be required to drop the top while on the track for safety reasons -- in the event of a rollover, its going to cause more harm than good.
