Maybe we define clubs differently, but there are groups that run lapping days in my region. They allow a convertible without a roll bar, and will allow a 4, 5 or 6 point harness. One of those groups requires a HANS device for any car using a 5 or 6 point harness.

These are pretty informal groups, the most organized would be Hooked on Driving. They have a published policy on convertibles.

I'm not convinced they are adequate, but I will run them again, likely a few times. I'm not too experienced with different pad compounds, and the 4 days I did in the Z4M recently are the most time I have spent with a road car on a race track. However, the design of the very basic brakes and small pads seem out of alignment with other aspects of the car.

In terms of pads, I will likely try some DS1.11. And I need to get used to changing pads regularly (to swap from track / road pads).

So much fun in this car, hoping to get back at it this weekend, but my cooling fan died and I need to get a new one in =/
