Trackday Rollover Bar

Although I have done other trackdays, I am about to do my first club event at Cadwell Park on 23rd.  I notice the requirement for a 'trackday rollover bar' and wonder if mine is such a thing.  I had read the Low Flying articles on the subject but cannot identify my rollover bar from those discussed.

The car is a 2004 S3 R300 and has a single diagonal brace.  Does anyone know if this will pass muster or have I got some very hasty arrangements to make to source a double brace structure?

Any input gratefully received.

The diagonal bracing is vital.

My bar does not have the diagonal brace...Would I need to replace the whole thing or can a brace be fitted to the original bar, either bolted or welded?

You need to replace the whole thing. Different gauge of metal is used on FIA bar.

I thought 2020 was the year that was going to give me all I wanted. It turned out to be the year to make me appreciate what I've got.

As above.

Please let me know if you'd like a copy of the Assembly Guide.
