Helmet Question

How old can a helmet be and still qualify for use in HPDE3. Does my Bell SA 2005 SA still qualify ??

 

I read 2000 or later, but that does not seem correct ??

 

Thanks

Looking at the CCR, the 2005 helmet is still good.

15.17.3 Helmet

All drivers are required to wear a properly fitted and secured helmet while on track. Helmets must be approved

by Snell and carry a sticker of Snell SA2005 or newer*. Ratings other than that of “SA” (Special Application),

i.e. “M2000, M2005, or CMR2007”, are not acceptable. *Alternatively, helmets with an FIA certification of

8860-2004 or newer, or an SFI label showing the rating of 31.1/2005 or newer are acceptable. It is strongly

recommended that any helmet sustaining any substantial impact be replaced.

 

In fact, I think that HPDE will allows helmets dated back to 1995. Somebody correct me if I am wrong.

obxninja, Thanks for that info. I'm thinking a SA 2005 will be good until 2015, but can't find the exact rule/quote right now.

It's generally OK to wear the current and one previous certified years.

 

Right now 2005 and 2010 are ok. Once the 2015's come out, the 2005 will not be allowed. It will be 2010 and 2015.
