Also, check out Home Depot or Lowe's around memorial day for canopies. They usually go on sale then. You could probably get on for about $60 (10'x10')

What about helmets? I plan to do this more than once, but I think I'd rather not have to drop a lot of money to get started, you know, spend the money a little at a time.

be careful on buying cheap aluminum canopies.. you will regret it..

waste of 60 bucks at any pit area.. could cost more if it flies away and hits a car..

as for helmets. shop alot.. i found a nice sa2000 helmet for 65 bucks last year. just shop around..

edit i did not buy the helmet. my Yellow HJC is approved M95

Fluid1 and I both got ours from www.racerwholesale.com they have good closeout deals from time to time. If you are patient enough like SR20Dee is saying, you can find a low cost SA2000. Basically:

M2000 - Autox only
SA200 - Full Racing

Someone or a group of autocross drivers needs to write a book with information like all of this . I've yet to see a Everything You Wanted To Know About Autocross....But Were Afraid To Ask Tony , novice handbook :D
