Snell 2000 helmets are now outdated for drag-racing

All, Snell 2000 helmets are now outdated for drag-racing..

OK here's the deal.
D.O.T. This is the bare basic requirement for Helmet to be used on a motorcycle three wheeler etc operated on a public road.

Snell the Snell Foundation started testing helmets and held them to a higher standard, higher impacts, chemical resistance, abrasion, multiple impacts. THEORETICALLY safer than a D.O.T. Helmet.

ECE the European standard.

You will need a Snell 2005 and above helmet....
