Need recommendations for racing helmet...

The only requirement is that it must have Snell 1995 or later certification.

Any good sites? I'm not looking to spend top dollar, so any deals would be awesome

Thanks!

ps I need one for a driving school at limerock.

If you're going to a BMWCCA school an "M" (motorcycle) rated helmet is O.K. and you can find a relatively cheap one at a local bike dealership. Decide on open or closed face and try it on. I'd recommend sitting in your car with it before buying if you're over 5' 11" and have a sun roof. I'm 6' 1" got a Bell Mag 4 and am up against the roof. Word has it that Bieffe has a thinner profile and will give you a little help in that dept. Are you going to the 3/29 session? If so - See You There!

Thanks for the info timm.

Yup, it's the 3/29 session, still not sure if my co-worker (e46 330i+sprts pkg) and I are going. (hopefully it isn't filled up yet)

Are you sure they will allow a M rated helmet? My first time at the track, so I'm not sure of all the rules.

The M is O.K., I checked last year when I did my 1st session. I would suggest you sign up ASAP or you'll miss it, I think they accept 100 or so and 92 were registered last time I looked.

Most tracks requiring helmets won't let you run a motorcycle helmet. That being said, I've only seen them check snell rating when running in faster classes.

The reason for not using a motorcycle helmet has to do with the impact rating. A motorcycle helmet is rated for a single impact, such as a rider striking an object or falling off of the bike. An automotive rating is rated for multiple impacts, such as in a rollover incident where your noggin is smacking the door, roof, steering wheel, and rollcage (if equipped).

Be smart-be safe.

Shop for a brain bucket: You need to try several for fit. Remember that not all heads are created equal. It is an important piece of equipment, I would not skimp. I wear glasses and the Bell M2 has a large eyeport and good ventilation.

I use the Bell M3 and like it very much. It is not cheap, but I only have one head. There are lots of places to save a few bucks, like gloves, shoes, even nomex suits (though I personally will not compromise on a suit when toasting ones nuts is at issue versus cost). Similarly, when it comes to a helmet, that is when you get the absolute best one you possibly can. Wait on another mod to the car, and spend the bucks on the helmet.
