I would buy your own helmet if you plan to do 2+ events per year. Some (not all) groups will allow you to use a motorcycle helmet snell/dot too. Iron Pony, craigslist, ebay, etc. all have cheap helmets if you're on a budget. Having said that, I would recommend investing in an auto-racing helmet with 2010+ snell approval. That will keep you out of trouble!

Not sure about the self-inspection though. I assumed they're pretty strict with the shop inspections (BMWCCA, PCA). NASA allows self-inspection. If someone else has more experience here please let me know as well. Don't like spending extra money on shop inspections!
