Does the E9X M3 vert (sorry, forgot 0,2,3) pass muster for MVP without an aftermarket bar?

Several tracks are insisting on roll bars for convertibles and others OK those with pop-up (roll over) systems. You can see our web site on the registration page for details. That said, it's better to have a roll bar then not.

If you are unsure, call me at (314) 249-3770.

I know that roll bars seems to solve the issue unlike the more restrictive other car club policy

I received a call over the weekend from a potential attendee asking "How many run groups and how many sessions each day?". We run three (Novice, Intermediate and Advanced) run groups with six, 20-minute run sessions scheduled for each run group per day.

Hope to see you at the track!
