Just wondering where I can get helmet/track gear from at reasonable prices.

Tim recommended the motorbike store in Auburn to buy a helmet. Will this be sufficient for track?

MCAS. That's the store in Auburn.
Anything with the AS sticker will suffice.

Unless you're racing you don't need an expensive helmet. Just get one that's comfortable to wear, and new.

I'd never buy a used helmet unless it was a good mate's - you have no idea what's happened to it in the past. If you're in a place that requires a helmet, you're in a place that you could break your skull in.

Motorcycle Supermarket is not bad. It's where I got Carmen's RJAYS helmet. They've got plain matte black ones there for $100 or so. At our level of motorsport (CAMS L2S and random track days) any road legal motorbike helmet will suffice.

The only time you need a very expensive helmet is if you race for position, where the regulations require further the helmet pass CAMS/FIA certification.

One word of advice "Never buy second hand helmets.."
