The issue isn't one of impact resistance, but rather providing the driver enough protection to get out of a car in the case of fire.

SA helmets are lined with Nomex, fire retardant material, whereas motorcycle helmets are not.

Some clubs allow M rated helmets to be used given that drivers are only wearing long pants and long sleeve cotton shirts as opposed to full driving suits.

Personally, I think it is a bit overkill, but at the same time I see its purpose.

As I understand it from Nik and from Chris, ride-alongs are permitted in instructor cars ONLY.

I am instructing at this event and would be happy to take people along if time/students permit.

My first obligation is to the student(s) I get assigned.

However, it has been my experience that there is usually time for people to hitch a ride.

I will before this weekend.

I committed to instruct, but then ran into issues with the house and changing jobs.

I will be there though.

Also, if anyone needs to do mechanical prep, repair or otherwise, we have a fully equipped garage if anyone needs to do anything to get ready.

Full set of tools, air tools, etc...

So, let me know if you need support and we can help.

I soooo wish I could go to this, but my clutch is on it's last leg after the last autocross, I boost, it slips. You guys have fun now, and see if you can get some pictures.

You don't have to run, just come and hang out.

From the organizer:

We just confirmed that the television show "RedlineTV", as seen on SPEED, will be at the Summit Point event capturing footage for a future 30 minute episode covering the entire event! This is great news for all Time Attack fans and enthusiasts as the sport of Time Attack racing continues to gather attention and continues to grow!
