Pierre Gasly, the young Frenchman who recently turned Formula 1 on its head by capturing the Italian Grand Prix for the small Scuderia AlphaTauri team, is the focus of today’s Hall of Fame Collection offerings that are sure to highlight any collection.
A race-worn and signed helmet, boots and gloves are available, and the helmet is particularly stellar. It’s a stunning, state-of-the-art Arai GP-7 that the 24-year-old rising star used for the opening two rounds of the 2020 season, both in Austria. The helmet was the first to be painted for Gasly in this season with Red Bull’s sister team.
The FIA mandates drivers having a mandatory three helmets for use at each grand prix, which means this helmet remained in Gasly’s rotation for the first eight races of the season. New helmets arrived for the ninth race, which allowed him to retire this helmet along with his winning helmet, the latter to his personal collection.
The helmet is red, white and blue to represent his home country. There is so much to like about the design, which includes Gasly’s “PG” logo and the team’s dark blue shield and its “Charging Bull” logo. There also are two subtle tributes you won’t want to miss: JB17 and AH in honor of his late friends Jules Bianchi and Anthoine Hubert.
In addition to signing the helmet, Gasly dated and event documented its first use. The helmet comes with a full Certificate of Authenticity. Don’t miss this one opportunity to acquire a race-used helmet by a driver who has been one of F1’s most impressive of 2020.
Gasly also used the same pair of boots and gloves in those first two races of the season, and they, too, are available from Hall of Fame Collection. Both are signed, dated and race documented by the driver. The boots are white, lightweight kangaroo leather Supermonos while the gloves are white Biotechs. They are fabulous and truly unique items. Don’t miss the chance to secure them for your collection.
