1980’s Danny Ongais Race Used Arai Helmet
Helmet worn by Hawaiian multi disciplined driver Danny Ongais.
Nicknamed the ‘Flyin Hawaiian’ Ongais was a Motorcycle and Drag Race Champion. A six-time Indycar race winner, who started in four F1 Grand Prix, raced at Le Mans and a winner of the Daytona 24 Hours. He would be widely remembered for the frightening accident during the 1981 Indy 500 where he suffered many injuries but returned to race the following year. He retired in 1997 after a substantial crash in qualifying for the Indy 500.
This Aria helmet worn during the mid 80’s, is as Ongais wore during his whole career in the plain silver color with his name in black on both sides with the Aria branding decals applied under the name and another to the front above the visor.
