Default 991 cabrilot Roll bar/cage

Hello all, I love racing and would love to do hill and time attack events. Since I own a 991.1 GTS Cab, most club and track require a roll bar. I did some search and I can't seem to find anything for 991 cab, plenty for earlier model but not the 991. I would love some input from other members.

This is not a thread of Cab vs hard top, I love my cab and would like to do more competitive events.
Also post pics if you have a cab with a roll bar.
Thanks

The tracks don't accept this as proper protection??

Are you referring to an aftermarket roll bar or the OEM roll bar that springs up in case of a roll-over?

Most racing groups will accept the pop up bars. Some will accept in a couple of groups (eg PCA). The minority will not accept at all.

Check before paying for a track day. I did not add a cage, or intend to, as I drive my car daily.

No I meant an actual after market roll bar/cage. But thanks for the image on the roll over protection, pretty neat. I would really like to do some time attack under SCCA rule I need a roll bar because I drive a convertible.
