thanks for the info. I'm plan on getting this helmet on amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Snell-SA2015-Approved-Racing-Helmet/dp/B01GGPO41I/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1487091019&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=sa2015+helmet&th=1&psc=1#AskThey should have loaner helmets. If that's the case I recommend some sort of head sock as loaner helmets can be kinda of icky. But you will need a helmet for the autocross and I'd assume the Talladega laps as well.
I went with a full face helmet; I don't remember exactly why I chose that but I was very glad I did when I got a ride in Dave N's 211 - you do NOT want to be in a car like that without a full face helmet, unless you want to be picking bugs off your face! I don't think there's a lot of disadvantages to a full face; I can see fine and I doubt it's THAT much heavier and I figure that it has to be safer. It can be a little uncomfortable with my glasses but I'm sure that's the same with an open face. So that's my two cents.Another question I hope you guys can help me out. Should I get a full face helmet or a open face helmet like this one:
You were one of the lucky few who got their Elise in time. Mine was still a couple months away. That was my first LOG and I remember it well. Barber is such an epic facility and I highly encourage everyone to come out to this years LOG....The last time my Elise was at Barber was in 2004 with less than 300 miles on the ODO...
