A recent alert was sent from Don Whitney (APBA Safety Committee Chairman) via APBA’s Chief Referee, Dave Shaw. Don took the time to clarify the helmets currently in use that meet the APBA safety rules. Please make sure that the helmet you use is listed. As a part of the required safety inspection, your personal safety equipment must comply with these rules.
This list shows the identification labeling and related information detailing helmets acceptable for use in APBA sanctioned events. The listing serves as a further definition of GSA Rule 3A, an aid for both drivers and inspectors.
All restrained drivers: Snell 2000,2005,2010,2015 SA,M,K and SFI 24.1 2005, 2010, 2015. Special Note: Snell 2000 until November 01, 2016. Also note that use of a Head/Neck restraint system (SFI 38.1 certified only) is recommended.
If you would like to see the label pictures for any of the above, please email the Superleague office and we will send the attachment to you.
