Helmet recommendations?

I'm thinking about taking the Car Control Clinic and maybe one of the Driving Schools through BMWCCA. Of course, helmets are required.

I didn't see that you could rent a helmet at the event, so I suppose I have to buy one. I'm sure someone here has some good suggestions for a beginner's helmet.

Thanks!

I don't know how "beginner" they are but Bell Helmets are, in my professional opinion, some of the best. Been racing for years and most people I know use Bell as well...

For your first helmet and basic events you are not beat this Pyrotech open face helmet from these guys. Bell makes Pyrotech and it basically the same SA2005 helmet for half the money. Me and two others I know all got Flat Black and love them. Removable inserts, etc.

I've had that same Pyrotech (in white) two years now and it has been a great helmet.
