Please be aware these acceptable helmets maybe excluded and others may be added by the various ASN countries, Snell, FIA and SFI groups.

Please refer to WCMA 2014 WCMA Technical Regulations Race Appendix 2 Competitor Safety Equipment  Section  2. Helmets

As of March 29, 2015 these are acceptable for 2015.  Snell SA 2000 helmets ARE NOT acceptable in 2015 and beyond.

Snell SA 2005
Snell SA 2010
Snell SAH 2010
Snell SA 2015

SFI 31.1
SFI 31.1A
SFI 32.2A

FIA Standard 8860 2004, 8860 -2010 see notes in WCMA 2014 WCMA Technical Regulations Race Appendix 2 Competitor Safety Equipment - Section 2. Helmets

Please Note:

As we all know Snell works on a 5 year time frame.  However, we also know there have been some years where no major changes occurred, or there was a delay in certification testing and the maximum 10 year time frame has been stretched for a year or two or for an extended period as it was with the 2000SA helmets.  Do not budget or anticipate or forecast your racing budget on a 2005 SA helmet in to the 2016 and 2017 rear.  A 2005 SA helmet maybe not be acceptable to 2016.
