    I was talking with someone in Columbus and they had hard of a pending rule change. This would allow open top cars without a roll bar to drive on the track such as Mid-Ohio, Putnam, and Gingerman at speed. It would open the door to more people for driver experience / PDX type events. 

     

    Is this a rumor or can someone point me in a direction.

    The Chicago region has this note listed on the upcoming PDX at Autobahn

    **The 2002 Porsche Boxster, the Honda S2000 and the MINI Cooper convertibles have been approved by the manufacturer as having factory rollover protection and may enter a SCCA Track Day (PDX) Event.

    From http://scca.cdn.racersites.com/prod..._final.pdf

    ELIGIBILITY OF VEHICLES:
    All vehicles must provide factory original (or better) seats that are securely mounted, seatbelts (SFI or FIA rated are recommend
    ed), and roll over protection for both driver and in‐car instructor (if used).

    Hardtop and Targa top vehicles are allowable.

    Convertible vehicles operating with the factory roll over protection system are allowable.
    Other convertibles should have either a factory hardtop or a 4 point roll bar. If a roll bar is
    used, it should meet the roll bar requirements found in the TT/HC Driver Information TTR.

    Vehicles that are in compliance with road race, solo, rally or time trial rules are allowable.

    Drivers of open top vehicles should use arm restraints or run with the top up.

    I thought most groups had adopted Appendix C which pretty much makes the factory rollover no longer considered enough for verts.
