A statistical study of sports car racing sanctioned by the Sports Car Club of America demonstrates the frequency of roll-over accidents and the infrequency of serious injury from such accidents. Detailed case studies from Watkins Glen Grand Prix Course are presented. Three similar rollover accidents taken from the author’s medical practice are presented for comparison. The use of roll bars for open cars is advocated.
