I've been using a "Conquer Snell Approved Open Face Racing Helmet" from Amazon for the last few seasons. Is about $200. Like you I got tired of pulling on & off a full face helmet.

I used to use an open face helmet. After seeing a few vids of fires in cars and glass and junk flying around during accidents I went with a full face. I do OT though which has much higher speeds than autox. I am not a fan of wearing a full driving suit or a hans either but safety isn't always as comfortable as an old pair of blue jeans.

I have been hit in the face with a rock before while on course. It hurts.

Unless I have to I'll stick with a full face.

I always wear full face now. Was wearing my open face during a track day in my Factory Five Daytona Coupe and a tiny piece of tire rubber went right into my eye. Havent taken the open face helmet out of the bag since that day.
