I'd like to get some open track days in this year, and the track I'm planning on going to (Beaver Run) requires the use of a helmet.
What should I look for when choosing a good helmet? I know it has to be Snell compliant according to track regulations, but other than that I'm not sure what to look for.
I stopped today at a motorcycle shop and they had some HJC helmets that were also Snell compliant. I can get a full face model, in solid white and with the addition of a smoked visor, for around $175 with tax. Is this a good brand to look at, or are they primarily for motorcycle riders?
Here's a link to the one I was looking at: HJC helmet
I'm not looking to spend bundles of cash, as I'm probably only going to be using this half a dozen or so times a year, but by the same token I don't want to skimp out when it comes to protecting my noggin!
Any help would be appreciated!
