This is a modified "tall" question. Does anyone have any idea of whether there will be enough clearance from the top with a helmet on to allow the car to participate in track events? I guess I'm asking current owners who drive at track events how tall they are, including their torso size. I'm 6'3" with a tall torso and 32" inseam legs. Thanks

I'm 6'1, 33" leg, have an Elise S1 with a hardtop, Simpson helmet and have driven track days and Autox with no problem, there is much more headroom than a 2001 Miata with either soft or hartop.

I think the roofline is the same in the S2. I have Alcantara S160 seats in my S1 which have a little more padding than standard, which probably takes up a quarter or half and inch extra.

I drive a 2000 Miata with rollbar and my helmet is taller than the bar, thanks for your input.
