I'm sure that MSV have added the 'ACU' standard recently
Taken from lotus on track -
Helmets are compulsory for all people intending to drive or passenger.
Ideally they should be certified to at least BSI 6658 Type A/FR or Snell SA2005 standard. Some circuits have started to insist on MSA approved helmets only, in particular Silverstone. Helmets can be hired on all Lotus on Track days for £20. It is also compulsory to have both your arms and legs fully covered by your clothing. Some drivers like to wear gloves but this is down to individual preference.
Open face helmets may not be allowed in some open top cars, if this is the case you will be asked to put your roof on or wear a full face helmet.
MSA approved helmet standards (these may be required at some circuits)-
SNELL SA2000 *
SFI Foundation 31.1A, 31.2A
BS 6658 Type A/FR
BS 6658 -- 85 Type A **
- May be withdrawn with effect from 01/01/10
- Withdrawn with effect from 01/01/10
Stop Press: Schuberths gains UK track Approval from ACU
Owners of Schuberths biggest selling S1 Pro and C3 models can now officially take their Schuberth helmets on the track in the UK, following notification from the ACU that they have passed their internal testing with flying colours.
This is only fitting, considering that Michael Schumacher and his successors in F1 (including Felipe Massa, Nick Heidfeld, Kimi Raikonnen, Nico Roseberg and Mark Webber) have been using Schuberths state-of --the art safety technology on the track for many years.
