Jackie Stewart, 1:2 half scale, open face helmet, signed
Extract from Jackie Stewart - 'Winning is Not Enough'
'Your racing helmet looks very plain', Helen mentioned one day in 1963.
'You think so?'
'Well, I mean, it's just white, isn't it?’
She had a point and, after some discussion, she went out and bought half a yard of Royal Stewart tartan silk, which she stuck around the helmet, and then sealed it with nail polish. It looked really smart.
Our World Exclusive half-scale replica of the iconic helmet worn by Sir Jackie Stewart to win his first Monaco Grand Prix and on to the Formula 1 World Championship in 1969 is an exclusive signed only edition limited to 500 pieces worldwide.
All the proceeds of the sale of this edition will benefit Sir Jackie's charity Race Against Dementia (RAD), for which we aim to raise £50,000.
The first 100 helmets will be 'RAD special editions', numbered (if you require a special number, please contact us and we will do our best to accomodate you) and come with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity and a RAD pin badge with a thank you note from Sir Jackie Stewart and RAD.
All proceed go to RAD in full to fund breakthrough and innovative dementia research. Helmet produced in partnership with and endorsed by Sir Jackie Stewart.
