I'm not familiar with all of the different helmets out there. People who have them can give you feedback.

that looks exactly like my pyrotect SA2000 closed helmet - http://www.soloracer.com/pyrofullfacesa.html

if it is OEM pyrotect, then the price seems to be good

I bought my G-force helmet for track days off of eBay. I'm happy with it.

I went to the G-force site and used their sizing chart to figure out what size to buy.

autox allows even the M2000 helmets, but they do recommend SA2000.

as for open or closed face, they're both allowed, it's personal preference. a lot recommend the closed faced one though (specially for open cockpit cars).

when i did my research, i thought that open face would be alright. but when i was running at the autox already i kept on looking at the steering wheel and how 'vulnerable' i felt my face was. i guess i kinda became paranoid, thus i switched to a closed face. nothing to lose being extra careful
