Well after years of watching Chin Motorsports events at Sebring, I plan on driving in my first Chin event in April.
I want to make sure that my helmet is up to standards. It is a KBC TK-77 full face helmet. It has the Snell logo on the back but does not clarify which year. I looked inside and there is only a care-instruction label, no Snell95 or Snell00 or anything.

The specs from a vendor:
Hi impact alloy PC shell
Easy shield removal system
2mm scratch resistant molded shield
Full removable, washable comfort liner
Duralax anti-allergenic lining material
Adjustable forehead and chin venting
Meets or exceeds Snell 2000 and D.O.T. standards

Will this be sufficient to use at Sebring?

Well I spoke too soon.
I started taking my helmet apart (it has removable cleanable padding) and found my M2000 sticker.
If anyone else had a similar question, you're looking for a Snell serialized sticker similar to this:

Matt, great post. Yes, the sticker is usually tucked under the liner. Thanks for showing everybody just what exactly that elusive SNELL sticker actually looks like. BTW, your certification is for 2005, and that helmet has a useful life until 2014...

Drive Safely, The management
