Points Event 1 registration page states the following:

A helmet that meets Snell certifications such as SA2010, SA2015, SA2020, M2010 or M2020.

However, the SCCA rule book for 2021 is still listing Snell SA2005 as a valid option (which will expire at the end of 2021): https://www.scca.com/pages/solo-cars-and-rules

Helmets meeting the following standards must be worn while on course: Snell Memorial Foundation standards EA 2016, SA2020, SA2015, SA2010, SAH2010, SA2005*, M2020D, M2020R, M2015, M2010, M2005*, K2020, K2015, K2010, K2005*; SFI standards 31.1/2015, 31.1/2010, 31.1/2005*, 41.1/2015,  41.1/2010,  41.1/2005*;  ECE  22.05  or  R22.05;  FIA  standards  8860-2018,   8860-2018-ABP,   8859-2015,   8860-2010,   8860-2004;   or   British spec BS6658-85 type A* are acceptable.

* Not valid after 12-31-2021: Snell SA2005, M2005, K2005; SFI 24.1/2005,  31.1/2005,  41.1/2005;  British  Standards  BS6658-85 type A/FR, BS6658-85 Type A.

Can someone clarify?  Will I still be able to use my existing SA2005 helmet for OVR events in 2021 or do I need to buy a new one?

Thank you for your time!

You can use your SA2005 at this time. We try to make sure that our page is accurate when we publish the events but sometimes our predictions don't play out. Typically the helmets expire exactly 15 years after their initial date (October 2005 to October 2020) but apparently the SCCA decided that one more year wouldn't hurt.
