Hello all. What kind of helmet do you guys use? DOT/SNELL/ECE? Open face or full face? Thanks!

DOT is acceptable however SNELL 2005 or newer is preferred. Open/Closed face doesn't matter. We do have loaner helmets available for you to use while you're at the auto-x.

If you're looking at buying one I would recommend getting a SNELL helmet since some other clubs (SCCA for example) require SNELL certified helmets. No point in getting one that you won't be able to use everywhere.
