Before I ordered my 2014 2SS, I looked for a 1LE with a sunroof. Those were VERY hard to find as some sanctioning bodies and/or tracks would not allow the sunroof for road racing. Since a large number of 1LE owners want to road race, dealers just do not order them with a sunroof.

North Central Texas is currently in the sunroof/windows down season. As with riding my Harleys this time of year, allergy meds keep me going...to a point. When on a scooter, it's time to drive instead of ride when my jeans turn green from pollen dust.
Up here in NJ when I was buying many dealers were ordering the 1LE one of two ways, either a base 1SS with maybe RS or NPP and loaded 2SSes with everything. Oddly mine did not have Nav, but fine with me. My dream 1LE would be a 1SS with BA, NPP, and the roof. Last July only one 1LE like that could be found in the country and it was yellow. But I had to have IOM so I settled for the 2SS I found.

I had not heard about sun roof cars being rejected. I have not been turned down at Atco or NJ Motorsports Park. But then again I am not racing in actual racing classes. I think many 1LE buyers prefer the mohawk look, do not want the extra weight of the sunroof, and want more headroom for helmets.

But like you I love the roof. It makes for great cruising in warm weather. I rarely turn the AC on, but I do not live in Texas. I want my car to do everything well. Drag, track, and cruise. But I do have to hold my head a little crooked when I put on a helmet.

I gave up my bike after I bought my first 5th gen Camaro. Here in NJ we do not have your wide open spaces. And I got tired of having to establish eye contact with every cage driver at every intersection. So many texters here in the north east. Now I cruise in comfort and no worries about rain in a car with a five star crash rating.
