Track Days and HPDE whose have you done and who has turned you away?

Yes I know a hardtop e46 would be "better", but my Vert has long been paid for and has done quiet well locally as an autocrosser.

Like to do some more with it on a track, and I am not against getting the autopower roll bat for it. However It would be helpful to know which events let you attend with a vert and rollbar, and which turn you away.

So anyone have a recent luck doing so (or bad luck trying)?

Can't tell you who Will or Will not let you participate, I can tell you that based on what you said, this is the exact Roll Bar I'd go with.

Autopower Race Roll Bar with Options #60904

Rob,

Yep that looks like the one. Back seat hasn't been sat in for years, when it does get used it is just for a package shelf. I'm guessing the horizontal bar is for attachment of a racing harness?

BTW I did have the Roll Over Protection actiate during a fairly fast and bumpy "lane change" on an autox. So I know that works.
