    Looking at buying a new helmet and found a killer looking one made by LS2 but it only lists DOT and ECE certification. Can it be used on the track to race wera with?

    According to the gospel (aka Rulebook)

    11. Riders clothing and protective requirements:

    a) All WERA competitors must wear helmets which have a Snell ’00 thru ‘15 approval sticker, or must be BSI or EC approved and must be in good condition (as determined by Tech) and not manufactured more than 5 years prior to the date of the event.. Helmets must be taken to Technical Inspection and must display a WERA Helmet Tech decal prior to being allowed on the track. Open-faced, modular, and dirt bike helmets are not allowed.

    Be sure to check the manufacture date!!!!!

    Don't be afraid to hit up TJ at riders discount, either. I have got a couple really good deals on helmets with a fresh date on them.

    Draik Beauchamp is sponsored by LS2 and wore them all last season in Moto America and some WERA stuff, I would think you are fine.
