This note contains important information for events requiring helmets in New Jersey during the 2021 season, as dictated by the New Jersey State Police.
The New Jersey Department of Law and Public Safety governs motorsport events in the state through its Chapter 62 Motor Vehicle Racetrack Regulations. These supersede, by law, requirements specified in our SCCA General Competition Rules.
SA 2010 / SAH 2010 / M 2010 helmets will NOT be allowed for use at events in New Jersey during the 2021 season.
While the SCCA states that SA 2010/ SAH 2010 helmets are allowed until 12/31/21, for events in NJ such as our Time Trials and Track Day events we are NOT allowed to accept Snell 2010 helmets. Only closed face SA 2015 and 2020 helmets can be used.
