Helmet Which rating?

Post by Norm » Wed Nov 16, 2016 2:10 pm

Hi all and yes I'm going to ask for clarification on this ruling and yes I have left a message for Bob to give me a call

Yes I need to get a new helmet


Below it states that Competitors are encouraged to upgrade to the now available Snell SA2010 (FIA 8860-2010), Snell SAH2010 or FIA 8860-2010 standard helmets.

By reading this I can get a FIA approved helmet?. Problem is as per below it also states that All cars and motorcycle streamliners require SA rated helmets

Is this saying that I must have a snell rated helmet.

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN.

Norm

3.A.2 Driver’s Helmet:
All drivers/riders shall wear a full-face helmet with face shield bearing a Snell Foundation tag reading Snell SA2005 (FIA 8860-2004). Competitors are encouraged to upgrade to the now available Snell SA2010 (FIA 8860-2010), Snell SAH2010 or FIA 8860-2010 standard helmets if making a new purchase. Helmets with a Snell rating label of 2005 will expire on January 1, 2017, helmets with a Snell rating label of 2010 will expire on January 1, 2022. No open face helmets will be allowed. Helmets will be visually inspected at least once each year. Helmets shall be undamaged and in serviceable condition. Eyeglasses worn under the helmet shall be shatterproof. All cars and motorcycle streamliners require SA rated helmets.

Not that I can answer your question Norm, but Snell SA 2015 helmets are now available.
