Talking Racing Helmet Rating Changes

Just a heads up for you track rats. I got an e-mail from Pittsburgh International Raceway today to check the sticker inside my helmet. The helmet ratings are changing. If you have an old out of date helmet. Now's the time to get a new helmet. Check with the tracks you run on, and see if they have any requirements for the helmets.

Here's part of the e-mail I got today.

2020 will be the LAST year to wear the highlighted ratings of your helmet.
Autocross: SA2005, SA2010, SA2015
PDE and Test & Tune: SA2010, SA2015

Starting 2021 you MUST have the following ratings
Autocross: SA2010, SA2015, SA2020
PDE and Test & Tune: SA2015, SA2020

I am good to go. The only thing I don't like about my helmet is I have that hump in the middle. It annoys me. I may be looking for something else.

This is the last year for mine. I have a SA2010 Bell GT5 Touring. I know what I'm getting for Christmas next year.

I feel silly for buying a 2015 helmet in Sept but good to know its good for another 5 years. Definitely will pay for itself for how comfy it is.

Thanks for good headups Rusty

Some info on the SA2020 helmets. They will not be on sale until 10/1/20. If anyone has one. It's a fake.

So what I understand, if I have a homologated FIA 8859-2015 helmet (which have SA2015 as well), it should technically be the same as SA2020, or very close.
