you'll be ultimately disappointed with an open face helmet. You probably
won't be allowed on track with it in the TR-3, and it's not at all
comfortable above parking lot speeds. You get a lot of drag and lift with
an open face helmet that you avoid with closed face. I use a Bell designed
with a more open eye port for use with glasses, and it is very
satisfactory. No serious racers besides Dale Earnhart use open face, and
none in an open car.
