Crash Helmet Rules
There is several reasons for the the new rules (some of which were covered at the general meeting) but basically what it comes down to is this.
Bike helmets have been designed for use on bikes and car helmets for cars. Each has sutitle differences which effects there performance during a crash. The most relative difference is that car helmets are flame resistant unlike most bike helmets. An other factor is the compatibility of car helmets with other safety equipment required such as neck braces and the use of head restraint devices which tether to the helmet.
This newly worded section of the rule book (shown below) effects ALL competition grades but DOES NOT apply to novelty events such as our Bathurst Day OR Derby's.
Please ensure when buying a helmet that you take the above information and ask for a helmet that meets these standards.
Most bike shops sell bike helmets and are unfamiliar with the requirements needed for Speedway.
SNZ has released copy of the current rule book with all the changes. Please take the time to download it and more importantly READ IT. There is a link to it below and it only takes a minute to download as it is a pdf file. The changes are highlighted in purple throughout the book making them easy to spot.
I have also included the latest copy of SNZ allocated titles at the bottom of the notice board page. However if you head to the SNZ web site they have all copy's of everything now from the AGM and the latest news letter.
Check out the Notice board for up coming events.
Next event you should be planning for is the Bathurst Endurance Race.
