The Petrolhead's Gift Guide 2022

From racing equipment to stylish apparel, our gift guide will help you make your petrolhead close one happy this festive season. As motorsports enthusiasts and professionals, we all have our different wants and needs; but one things remains the same, our passion for the sport. This festive season you can let go of all the stress, let us take care of the thought process and you take care of making your close ones happy. 

 

 

For the (extremely) serious racer

The Bell HP7 EVO III is classified as a Superhelmet and offers the highest level of protection for those who like to go fast, incredibly fast. With its carbon fiber construction and agressive design, it is the helmet of choice for many professionals behind the wheel. This high-end helmet will stick with them for years to come and will become an inseparable part of their gear bag. Buy it here. 

We do understand that the HP7 breaks the bank, and although there is no price for safety; there are still other fantastic items you can get for the racer in your life.

This Bell Racing Gear Bag features a trolley design with separated compartments that allows racing gear to be safely stored and easily transported. From car trunks
to airplane cabins, this makes travelling with your gear a breeze. Buy it here.
 
The Alpinestars Tech-1 Start gloves are the perfect example of bang for your buck. Featuring an anatomically optimized design, they use lightweight, breathable materials to offer extreme comfort in the cockpit of a race car. The palm features a silicon pattern that greatly improves grip. Buy it here. 

 

We have a lot more equipment such as shoes, FHR devices, technical underwear and more available on our store, all of which makes for a great gift to give this festive season. Browse our racing equipment collection here. 

For the karting racer 

 
The OMP KS-3 Karting Suit offers a lightweight, yet durable construction that is sure to endure many, many long karting races. It features a zip closure and a low-cut collar for a comfortable fit with your balaclava. There are multiple mesh areas that offer breathability and ensure sufficient airflow to keep you cool. Buy it here. 

The RS7-K Helmet by Bell Racing is based on the racing helmet RS7, offering the same agressive design and shell shape. Sharing the same shell with the RS7, it also means that it features the same high level of protection. It features a DSAF visor and ventilation vents to keep them cool during races. An absolute must for any karting racer. Buy it here. 

The tight fitting seats of karts offer little to no padding, which leads to continuous impacts on the ribs. This is what makes rib protectors a necessity for all those frequently racing karts. This Bengio Rib Protector is one of the best available and is even loved by drivers such as Charles LeClerc. Buy it here.
More karting gear and equipment is available on our store here. 

For the enthusiast

For the classy and understated enthusiast, this The Mechanists | Official 24 H Le Mans Bracelet adds a subtle, classy touch of motorsports to their style. Handmade out of sterling silver, this bracelet is a sure-way to ensure they wear their passion on their sleeve. Buy it here.

 

This half-zip sweatshirt by 8Js is a refined top for the cooler weathers. Perfect for trips to colder climates or chilly nights outside, it is sure to impress with its quality fleece construction and vintage racing inspired design. Buy it here. 

For the loud and proud racing fan, this Last Era hoodie features the F40 LM on the back. The F40 was the last car designed with input from Enzo Ferrari and quickly went to become a cult icon of the 90s car world. The F40LM took the already incredible machine and stepped it up to the next level. This bright hoodie can be purchased here.

This one hits close to home for us, coming from the Gulf Historic event this November. A retro-inspired t-shirt that pays homage to the classic racing cars and the iconic city of Dubai. Give them a piece of home that they can bring wherever they go. Buy it here. 

This teamwear jacket from Honda F1 team from the early 90s not only comes with immaculate vintage style, it also carries with it a piece of history. Signed by Japanese F1 driver Satoru Nakajima, this jacket is a mix between a museum piece and a statement piece. We will let the recipient of the gift decide that. Buy it here. 

We have a much wider selection of lifestyle products, such as t-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, small accessories and more; all available here. 

We hope that we have helped you pick a gift for your close one this holiday season. If you still need help deciding, feel free to contact us and our team will help you pick the best gift for them.
