Most racing drivers go through several teams and sponsors, but one element remains the same, becoming an integral part of the driver's legend and heritage. The Helmet Pack is inspired by the headgear of four men who changed racing forever and made F1 top of the motorsport food chain.
Luckily for everyone, they also happened to wear über cool helmets that make this pack an essential for the seasoned petrolhead.

Sir Jackie Stewart is an F1 legend with three Drivers' Championships under his belt and an early advocate for racing safety. The idea for the Royal Stewart tartan stripe came from his wife, Helen, - the first DIY version was just a piece of fabric stuck around the helmet with nail polish over it - after noting that the Flying Scot's all-white helmet was rather dull.
Graham "Mr. Monaco" Hill is not only one of the greatest in F1 history, he is also the only driver ever to win the Triple Crown of Motorsport - winning the Monaco GP, 24h Le Mans and Indianapolis 500. Hill was also an accomplished rower and adopted the colors and cap design of the London Rowing Club for his racing helmet.
Niki Lauda was a three-time F1 champion racing for both Ferrari and McLaren, well known also for a horrific Nurburgring accident that nearly killed him and left him scarred for life. The Austrian was also an aviation entrepreneur, having founded three airlines, one of which, Lauda Air, had a logo with the shape of a big L that became the design of his helmet.
James Hunt was F1's original enfant terrible known for his often reckless tail-happy driving - earning him the nickname "Hunt the Shunt" - but also for his charismatic personality and playboy lifestyle filled with episodes of controversy and excess. The stylish blue-yellow-red stripe set on a black background design of his helmet resembles his Wellington College school colors.
