Personally I like shooting around/over cars in matches. I have no problem with hitting the car being described as an DQ-able offense in the WSB... although I personally think they should be allowed to continue.
Just don’t equate it to shooting steel (targets) at unsafe distances, simply leave it as it’s own unique thing if you choose to make it DQ-able.
I’ve fired handgun rounds through car hoods (delibrately) and been guilty of grazing a windshield pillar in a match, both up close. Neither one resulted in any spalling or splatter or fragmentation. In the latter case I made the position adjustment and continued shooting.
I vote to leave that ‘wall’ in the match. Also take advantage of the fact that, unlike IDPA, they have no requirement to hug up close to the car for cover. Don’t position your targets through tight downrange ports that require PCC or Open shooters to fight their height-over-bore issues 3 millimeters away from the car. Give them a foot or two of lateral / vertical space and let everyone have fun blasting away around automobiles.
I won an IDPA match once. It was neat.
