C. Driver Safety

i) Helmets

a) All drivers and passengers must wear helmets conforming to either the latest or two immediately preceding Snell Memorial Foundation standard or bear an approval sticker of an ASN affiliate of a foreign country. The following standards are acceptable:

(i) Snell Foundation - 2005, 2010, 2015 M or SA,2010 SAH.

(ii) SFI Foundation - 31.1A, 31.2A or 31.1/2005

(iii) British Standards Institution - BS 6658-85 type A/FR

(iv) FIA 8860-2004 and beyond

b) Snell 2010M, 2005M or 2000M rated helmets are not acceptable for vehicles equipped with a roll cage. These drivers require a helmet which meets one of the FIA, Snell SA, SFI or BSI standards listed above.

Or for those that find that too confusing and don't mind sharing a little head sweat then the club has loaner helmets 8-)
