Correct, with NO eye protection the helmet is/was basically open faced. So deemed Illegal (unsafe) I wonder why with drivers spending such a huge amount of money on their cars, why they just dont buy a helmet designed for car racing rather than motorcross
From an interview done with Pete it was a local Chch rule... as like the Giants said its no different to racing with a visor up... Ive seen a couple drivers this season with openface and just sunglasses racing no goggles, old school Mr Ward style... Cant be illegal widjem as they dont check goggles at gearcheck, well ive never been asked for mine nor checked my visor and nothing in rule book..? But Pete did state in the interview it is something he will be asking at driver breifing to clear it up.

I preferred motorcross style helmet with googles. Way more comfy and more air flow. And I use to pull googles off put them around my neck brace sometimes while teams racing so I could see properly and got a real good view.
