    I tried sending an email to a local track, but got not reply, so I figured some of you guys would know the answer to this question.

    I believe convertible top cars need a 4 point roll bar to road race a street car on a track like Waterford or Nelson Ledges, but do targa top and T-top cars need a roll bar, too? I also prowled around the websites for those two tracks but didn't see the answer there, either.

    I agree! Do not skimp on safety. 6-point minimum for racing anything over 60mph is my PERSONAL opinion. No such thing as overkill on safety.

    To answer your question. Treat targa tops and t-tops, the same as verts. You dont have metal over your head, put a cage in it.
