1998-91 Michael Schumacher Signed Race Used Sauber Mercedes World Sportscar Helmet
Very rare Michael Schumacher Bell XFM1 helmet. This helmet was worn during his very first single seater car racing season in 1988 winning the Formula Konig Championship and also used in Formula Ford. This helmet has great history as he continued to wear it in 1989 in the German F3 Championship, at the Macau Grand Prix and also in the DTM Series racing for Mercedes Benz. Schumacher would then use it in the World Sportscar Championship driving the fantastic Sauber Mercedes in 1990 and 1991(winning races in Mexico and Japan). He would make his only appearance in the 24hr Le Mans in 1991, a race he was leading until the Mercedes had gearbox issues that cost them 9 laps to fix and ultimately the overall win. These early races in different disciplines showed the promise of the career that was to come and this helmet was used right before he would join F1 later that 1991 season.
Add this multi race winning helmet from the early part of the 7 x World Champions career to your collection today.
The helmet has been signed in blue marker by Schumacher and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
