    Dorenbecher Helmets?

    Hey ya'lls! I have a few out-of-date helmets. We used to give these to the Dorenbecher Dash. Do they still accept them? Do I have to wait until the next dash? Anywhere else?

With some new tools, it's easier to make progress scanning documents and getting them converted to PDF files for presentation on the Internet. You'll find newly added Memos from...

    new rules for helmets and HANS?

    I've been trying to figure out if the rules for helmets and HANS devices have changed. It looks like both rules were voted down -- SA2000 helmets are still legal, and HANS devices are not required. Is this still true, or did one of the boards overrule the vote and change the rules?
