 Dear Racers,

After review and conversation with Snell and SFI I hereby recommend the following changes to the rule book effective January 1 2018. As recommended at the national meeting on implementing a helmet schedule, I wanted everyone to have an idea on what helmets they can purchase and how long they will be approved for use.

The Snell SA rated helmets and SFI24.1 and higher rated helmets run in 5 year increments. SFI started putting dates on the tag/sticker in 2005, then 2010, and now 2015. Snell helmets are usually available October 1st of the year of new certification. So, a new SA2015 helmet was not available for purchase until October 2015.

 

I hereby recommend we use the current and immediately previous SA and SFI24.1 and higher rated helmets (+) plus 1 calendar year.

Example as follows:

1.      SA2010 & SFI 2010 24.1 and up helmets will be acceptable for use thru 2021 provided the helmet is in good condition.

2.      SA2015 & SFI 2015 24.1 and up helmets will be acceptable for use thru 2026 provided the helmet is in good condition.

 

Sincerely,

Matt Hickox

QMA Safety Director
