dragging helmet thru a corner, not on an LT!

While looking for information on Zamp helmets I ran across this on Utube. I've never seen video of how far track racers can lean and drag their knees while going through corners.

Oh. It seems as if Zamp makes helmets passing certification fro auto racing, and couple for motorcycles.

I not sure who was more CRAZY the first guy that touched his helmet on the ground Or the guy filming it & taking one hand off the bars to give it a thumbs up at that speed.

Loved the video, about as close to racing as I'll get. Got to question the desire to drag one's helmet on the roadway. but I enjoyed watching it. Now would he need to replace the lid since the outer shell integrity is now compromised?

Maybe he put a slider on his helmet?
