  • Pre-register to guarantee your space.
  • 20 Minute Instruction session required for all first time FIRM track customers
  • All drivers must attend the mandatory driver’s meeting.

  • Vehicle Technical Reviews by The FIRM’s track stewards is mandatory and vehicles must meet minimum standards.  Please download and complete the Vehicle Technical Inspection Form and bring it with you to tech inspection.
  • Driving a convertible or any OPEN TOP vehicle, even with a pop-up, factory or after -market roll bar, is an added risk.  If you are unsure if your rollover protection is adequate then seek a professional opinion or use a different vehicle. We can not advise you, other than to state the obvious dangers of open tops at high speeds.

  • Dropping two or more wheels off-course will require you to return to the paddock for a tire inspection.
  • Driving off-course repeatedly, whether intentionally or unintentionally, may end your race day.
  • Respect other drivers on track – we are not racing.

Convertible Q&A

Q:  Are all convertibles allowed on track?

A:  We do allow convertibles of all sorts on track, but there are some basic requirements.  Even if your car meets the requirements, there is always added risk with a convertible car on track.

Convertibles built prior to 2006 must have either aftermarket roll bars (at least a 4 point) or OEM rollover protection. Some examples of OEM rollover protection:

    • Audi A4/S4
    • Audi A5/S5
    • Audi TT
    • BMW 3 series including M3 (1999‐present)
    • BMW 6 series including M6 (2003‐present)
    • BMW Z3 if also equipped with factory-optional pop-up roll bars
    • BMW Z4
    • Chrysler Crossfire
    • Dodge Viper
    • Honda S2000
    • Jaguar XK8/XKR, F-TYPE
    • Lamborghini Murcielago
    • Mazda Miata (3rd Generation only, 2006‐present)
    • Mercedes C class, CLK, S Class, and SLK
    • Mercedes SL – current models with pop-up roll bars only
    • MINI 2009+
    • Nissan 350/370Z roadster
    • Porsche Boxster
    • Porsche 996, 997, 991
    • Saab 9-3 (2004 & later)
    • Volvo C70
    • VW New Beetle, Eos

If your convertible is not in this list, it most likely requires an aftermarket roll bar to be installed in order to use it on track.

Q:  What about the broomstick test?

A:  If you are using 4-, 5- or 6-point racing harnesses that will hold you upright in the event of a rollover, the top of all occupants’ helmets must fall below the line between the top of the windshield and the top of the roll bar for the roll bar to provide full protection.  In motorsport, this is referred to as the “broomstick test” because it is typical practice to rest a broomstick across the top of the windshield and the roll hoop while the occupants are seated in the vehicle to determine whether the roll hoop is high enough.  If the top of any occupants’ helmet is above this plane, the roll bar is not going to provide sufficient protection.

Sufficient roll hoop height can also be an issue for tall drivers, in part because the roll hoop is designed by the manufacturer for street use (driving without the additional height of a helmet). It is your responsibility to confirm you have sufficient roll bar height before registering for our events.
