Helmets

Helmets must be worn at all high speed education events.  They are not required at winter driving schools.  The current certification requirements helmets are Snell 2010 minimum (SA). Please reference the Snell website for much more information http://www.smf.org/

Your helmet MUST say on it: SA2010 or SA2015.

This certification is usually on a sticker under the inner lining of the helmet. (Note that the Audi Club has extended the permitted use of SA2005 helmets through the 2017 season.

The primary difference between SA (Special Application) and M (Motorcycle) helmets are a Nomex (fire resistant) lining. NEQ requires the additional protection of the SA rated helmets; M rated helmets are not allowed.

Remember, "...got a ten dollar head?...buy a ten dollar helmet"

The NEQ does maintain an assortment of SA2015 helmets to rent, in a variety of sizes. Preference will be given to novice drivers when it comes to helmet assignment, and while it is likely that your rented helmet will be used only by you during the event, we may have to have people share if there is overdemand for one particular size. If you will require a rental helmet, please be sure to indicate this when you register for the event.

Balaclavas will be provided with rental helmets for sanitary reasons and must be worn.
Again, see the Snell website at http://www.smf.org/ is a great reference for helmet information.
