Angry roll cage

Hi fellows!
after a looong abcense my car is back in the garage. I had the motor completely rebuilt since I blew 2 holes in it almost 2 years ago. Aftere several thousand dollars it is now done, I'm happy to say.
However, in the precess I had an autopower roll cage kit added to my existing roll bar, to comply with this year's new rules for race. Now the bars that go on top front to back are so close to my head, that I can touch it without effort, even strapped down. And with the helmet on, well, I might as well tape my helmet to the bar to keep it from bouncing constantly. And this is even before I install the roll bar pads.
I never had a full cage before, but this doesn't sound safe.
Opinions?
Sounds like I'll have to sit this one out. I was really looking forward to come.
