    Okay, my gal-pal at work wants me to join her car club for track racing ( they would love to have a Hellcat in the mix). I did some mild research, with costs all over the place, and looked at a Bell M series helmet. Well, she informed me that not all tracks accept "M" series helmets, even though it's SNELL approved. Any recommendations?... keep in mind comfort, cooling and vision ( with glasses).

    BTW...at SRT Track Experience, they provide 'Open Face" helmets...great for glasses, but looking at wrap around helmets...horror stories about wrecks and individuals who have had their facial bones rearranged because of an "Open Face" helmet. Also I use to wear a wrap around helmet in my motorcycle days).
    Also, that Bell helmet was nice because they had widened the opening to accommodate glasses. A lot of manufactures are doing the same.

    So any thoughts or recommendations? Who better to ask than my forum family.
