Z4 Roadsters allowed at Trillium School?

My friend would like to know if he can attend school with a Z4 - he is concerned whether there is a roll-bar restriction. Anyone?

I know this is a late response, but I haven't seen this post until now, and we still have the September school this year to cover. We've had several Z4 roadsters attend lately. So for one that is a good sign. However it really depends how your friend sits in the car, we have what is called the broom stick rule for convertibles and roadsters. Basically sit a broom stick on the top of the windshield to the top of the roll hoop or headrest, then sit in the car with a helmet on, if you clear it by an inch you're good, if not talk to Steve Gailits our Track Chair, (his info is on to see if it will be allowed.
