Motorsport Memorabilia is privileged to offer this stunning helmet that was the winning design in a competition run by West Tobacco as McLaren main sponsor to design a helmet to be used by David Coulthard during the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend in 2004.
There were 873 entries and ten designs were shortlisted and painted on to genuine Arai SK5 helmets for DC to choose a winner from during a promotional visit to Moscow on June 5th 2004. This is the helmet with the winning design selected. All ten designs were later displayed in the paddock club at the Hungarian race weekend.
The helmet bears full sponsors logos of West, Siemens, SAP, Mobil1, Computer Associates, Hugo Boss and TAG Heuer as well as DC’s own logo. It is fitted with an Arai tear off hand signed and dated 2004 by DC and comes with a comprehensive COA detailing the history of this unique and original piece as well as its original Arai helmet bag.
