Have you ever had a track official ask to see your helmet?

In the last 12 month Ive been to MIR and Mason Dixon on several occasions and made 40 combined passes. Not once has someone asked to inspect my helmet. Prior to that at LACR and Irwindale in CA, not a peep has been made about my helmet.

Take a helmet and you will be fine.
