DOT Approved Helmets

In 1972 the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced that they were going to develop a standard for motorcycle helmets. The Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 218, commonly referred to as the DOT standard, was written using information and methodology that was developed several years earlier. The initial draft was supposed to be revised before its release in 1974, but the changes were never made. Although the DOT standard could use some alterations, it still provides for a safer helmet then one that has not been DOT approved.

There are two key differences between a SNELL and DOT approved helmet. First, is the testing standards the helmets go through, and second, is the verification of the results.

It's easy to get lost in the scientific jargon when trying to sift through the testing process of both standards. Simplified, DOT and Snell assess each helmet by placing it on a head form that is equipped with sensors. The helmeted head form is then dropped from a specific height onto a steel anvil, and the severity of the impact is recorded.

DOT and Snell test each helmet two times at four different impact zones. DOT drops their helmets from a 6-foot height on the flat anvil and from a 4.5-foot height on the hemispherical anvil. Snell on the other hand, drops the helmets from a 10-foot and 7.5-foot height on both anvils, which simulates a more severe impact.

DOT certification, however, is less regulated. The manufacturer performs their own tests and determines whether their helmets are DOT approved. Even though the manufacturer doesn't have to report their findings, the government does occasionally conduct limited tests or spot checks. Nevertheless, allowing each company to test their own equipment and not make them report their results means that the DOT certification is done by the honor system.

The DOT standards are important because they outline the minimum requirements all motorcycle helmets must meet, which has already saved countless lives. But if you want to make sure your helmet has been tested impartially, then buying a helmet with the Snell sticker on it is a dependable alternative.

Back to my own word, I am not sure there is such a thing as a DOT SA2010 helmet as the DOT rating is for motorcycles and the SA motorsports. While the SA helmet would equal or surpass the DOT impact standards, the field of vision may not.
I guess I should have made it a little more clear. I meant street legal (vision). I knew that Snell was tougher standards than just DOT.

Wooooooo Hooooooooo BowtieBelle. Girls Rule. Let's show the boys how it's done. (or at least give it a shot).


Okay, on anotehr subject. Don't get me wrong, I for sure want to do this. But it is ratehr hart to commit to a particular time frame before the schedule is announced & you know what you might be missing at that time. Isn't this getting the cart a bit before the horse? I wonder if that is why folks did not follow through previous years? Like i said before, this is my first C5 Fest & I don't want to miss out on anything. Okay, I'm sure at an event like this, in reality, that is impossible, but I want to do as much as I possibly can. Any ides how soon the schedule is going to be announced?

Last year we ran four autocross sessions -- 9:30 to Noon and 1:30 to 4:30, both days. Some ran all four sessions and some ran one session. I would say it is reasonably safe to predict that the C5FEST III schedule will be similar. Long story short, you won't miss anything, unless you miss a session of Autocross

Having been to several big car events like this before, we should still be able to attend the planned events like cruises, even if we work a session. I would guess that the drag sessions will run concurrently with the autocross sessions, and the vendors will be open the whole time the sessions are being held. We might miss some sit down BS time, but we've got lots of time for that, but I hope the venue and schedule are announced SOONER rather than later!

QFT

Remember folks, volunteers will tremendously help this event run smoothe as silk! Members that have volunteered and in post #2 with either Friday or Saturday, AM or PM. This is generic for right now.

I'm plugging the names in, and once the official schedule of events is released I can move names around based on what you want to do.

I'll try to break it down into time hacks so you know exactly when we need you at the AutoCross course. Hopefully I can do this early enough and post it so if there is a conflict, I can work it out to benefit YOU.

First and foremost this is to be fun! No frowns allowed. There will be a cycle of working corners and participating in the AutoCross so things will keep moving.

Hope ya'll are looking forward to this as much as I am!!
I added you to modified BowtieBelle!!

The SOONER everyone registers for the event, the SOONER the registered guests choose Autocross, Drag or both, the SOONER our guests volunteer to help, the sooner the Mod Squad will release more details. They are a bit insecure and want to make sure when they throw this party they are not the only ones that show up.

SO what would be a good, cheap helmet to buy that would meet both auto-x and drag racing requirements. I have a feeling my old helmet isnt going to meet the requirements...
