helmet requirements for 2016
UPDATED JANUARY 24, 2016
Effective with the 2016 racing season, racing Helmets must be Snell rated, no older than 2010. Helmet applicable to auto racing are denoted as SA and SAH. The SA and SAH Helmets are the same, but the SAH has clips installed for a Head & Neck Restraint. DOT or M rated Helmets are not permitted. This is a requirement just received from our insurance provider.
As we move forward it is important to plan for further race car and safety equipment upgrades. In 2017 all cars will require an approved racing seat and in 2018 all drivers must wear racing shoes. A head and neck restraint system is mandatory in Sportsman, Legend and Bandolero cars and is highly recommended in all other divisions.
