Details

Rejoice in the early days of motorsport with this special 1940s racing helmet.

History

Before corporate sponsorship took over race car liveries in the late 1960’s, teams would race in their country’s traditional colours. For British entrants, that colour was a dark shade of green.  This originated from the 1903 Gordon Bennett Cup, held in Ireland (which was at the time part of the UK), as motor-racing was illegal in England. As a mark of respect, the British cars were painted in green.

On a number of occasions, racing drivers would also sport a matching helmet to go with their cars.
