Question regarding BMW M school helmet

Hi, I have the M school helmet and it is rated SNELL 2005 approved. However there is nowhere outside or inside the helmet that states its approved. I am planning to attend my first track events and was planning on using this helmet. What happens when I take it to track and they ask me to verify its rating? What do I do?
Thanks

Go to the helmet company website (Impact) and look up the ratings.

Or call them.

If you lift up the padding, the Snell sticker should be on the inside against the foam shell.

Yeah, I had issues with that helmet. I took it to a BMWCCA event once. The guy doing the inspection just about wouldn't let me go because there was no sticker on it. I told him where it came from and talked him into calling it good, but I didn't want to have any more problems after that so I just bought a cheap helmet that was rated and had stickers on it.

Found it. if you remove the padding located at the back of the helmet there is a SA2010 sticker or something like that. i was expecting it to be engraved as opposed to a cheap sticker.
