BMW E93 M3 and Tracking

Can someone please explain to me why tracking an E93 M3 in the Tri-State is an issue?

http://content.bmwusa.com/microsite/...n/rollbar.html

The E93 has a Rollover Protection System

BMW added reinforced bars behind the headrests on the back seats that are barely noticeable. Rollover Sensors monitor vehicle movements, and in the event of an accident, the bars rise up above the height of the headrests to protect you in a roll-over.

Also it passes the broom stick test. Which from my M3 vert friends on the West Coast confirm it does.

I can never get a clear answer on which/what events I'm allowed on.

some do some don't.. depends on the event / insurance policies

i was allowed to run at willow springs with shift-s3ctor here on the west coast, but bmw cca won't let verts do their events.

But at least they allow it

I know BMW CCA won't allow it here; regardless they suck so no one should want to run with Anyways

There should be some groups that allow it

If they allow S2Ks, they should allow e93s
