I like an Open Face design for AutoCross.
1) Better peripheral vision.
2) It's a heck of a lot cooler on those blistering hot summer days.

If you're going to purchase a helmet (most likely an M rated helmet), please go to a local motorcycle shop and test fit them. A proper fit is just as important for safety as is having a helmet.
