Just a reminder to everyone racing LAKC. Please check the specs on your current helmet(s) to make sure they meet or exceed the above regulations. All helmets will be inspected and tagged with a sticker during pre tech. You MUST have this sticker before being allowed onto the track.
Some of you may have purchase a "NEW" helmet that was on sale or clearance only to find out the Snell dates are expired. This helmet may be OK for D.O.T. but is not legal for racing karts. So please check and confirm. If you have any questions or doubts about ANY of your safety equipment feel free to contact any one of the BOD's. There will be NO grace period for the helmets. If you have a non-legal helmet you will not be allowed to take to the track.
