Hello all,

Looking at a helmet for tracking in my car. Live in the Calgary area. Anybody have any recommendations to start looking? Have no preferences and budget is wide open right now - as long I like the product (must have good fit, meet specs, is fr)

Looking like the Stig would be cool though.

Thanks
D

What kind of racing? Some have different spec's then others.

Try Performance Parts Center or Mopac.

Looking to track the car. Must be Snell 2005 minimum? I see 2010 out there now. That an improvement I'm guessing?

are you doing solo 1 or solo 2? I think if your doing these you need SA 2005 or newer.

if your not doing either and your just doing track days a normal motor cycle helmet will be fine. snell 200d.

ive got a HJC cl-sp it is snell and dot approved.

its xs though. ive only worn it a hand full of times

basically helmets have a new certification every 5 years hence then snell 2010. Solo 1 and solo 2 requires you to either have a helmet with the current certification or the previous certification. So a snell 2005 or 2010 is good enough. Keep in mind if you get a 2010 you'll be good for the next 10 years where as a 2005 will be good for the next 5 ( till 2015).

I donít think they have come out with the 2010's yet. I thought they were coming out later in the year. If you check any of the manufactures websites they all list 2005 stuff. I havenít seen any 2010.
Basically if you want to race this season you have no choice other than to buy a 2005, or find a used helmet and buy a 2010 when they come out.
