High centre-of-gravity vehicles (SUVs) are generally not eligible to participate due to a higher risk of rollover.

Please check with us before registering to verify.
Non-plated specialty vehicles (track/race car) are approved on a case by case basis and are allowed in the Instructors and Advanced run groups only.

Convertible cars are eligible to participate if they have appropriate rollover protection. 

Please contact the registrar if you wish to participate with a convertible.

For more experienced students or instructors, full SCCA/CASC approved roll bars are required (bracing, proper tube size etc). Broomstick rule will be applied (must have clearance over top of helmet). 'Pop-up' protection like 3er or 911 convertibles are not sufficient. Check with us first if you are in doubt!
