Are Snell M2000 helmets okay for autocrossing?
I assume that the visors are not needed if you are inside a car with a windshield...

Also, does the helmet type matter? (Full face, dirt bike, open face)
I have motorcycle helmets of all types that go clear back to M95 and as I am going through then it gives me a chance to get rid of anything that won't work and determine for the number of drivers we hope to have, that everyone has a proper helmet, or if I need to go on a SA2010 shopping spree!

WRT helmets for Solo,
per the 2014 draft #1 of the rulebook:
4.3 DRIVERâ€™S SAFETY EQUIPMENT
Helmets meeting the following standards must be worn while on course:
All helmets meeting the latest or two immediately preceding Snell
Foundation standards (SA2010, SAH2010, SA2005, SA2000, M2010,
2014 SCCAÂ® NATIONAL SOLOÂ® RULES â€” 43
M2005, M2000, K2010, K2005, K98), SFI standards 31.1, 41.1, 31.1A,
31.2A, 41.1A, 41.2A or British spec BS6658-85 type A/FR are acceptable.
Formula Junior drivers must use helmets meeting the above, SFI 24.1
(Youth Helmets), Snell CMR2007 (Childrenâ€™s Motorsports Restricted),
or Snell CMS2007 (Childrenâ€™s Motorsports Standard) specifi cations.
Also, Formula Junior helmets must be of closed face design incorporating
full face shields and chin bars.
For maximum protection, helmets must fit securely and should provide
adequate peripheral vision. The chin strap must be securely fastened.
Loaner helmets should be available to vehicle occupants not having their own.
so, yes, M2000 is OK, until the next Snell standard is defined/available.

I purchased my helmet from Gregg McNabb (white Vette) at Gene's Gallery.
