Lewis Hamilton Helmet Cartoon

Lewis's 2009 helmet design has a new addition! On the back is a cartoon of him spinning the decks as he does at some of the after-race parties. We wanted to update the design without changing his now world-recognised design, so I came up with a simple, eye-catching cartoon to bring a bit of fun to the design.

FIA Formula One Safety Crew Helmets

We have just finished painting 6 helmets for the FIA Formula One crew, and they are on a plane on their way to Australia for the first Grand Prix. The helmets are to be used at the races by FIA personnel including the safety car driver, so we might have another driver leading a GP at some point, apart from Lewis!

Classic Alfa Romeo.

Customer Nick Eden recently picked up his new helmet on his way to a classic race meeting. With him was his stunning 1939 Alfa Romeo, and we all took a break from work to admire it. The car was immaculate and the craftsmanship made it hard to believe how old it was. The car also has a lot of history - it was originally raced successfully by Mussolinis' chauffeur!
