2000 Jacques Villeneuve Signed Honda Lucky Strike BAR F1 Race Worn Helmet
Race helmet used by former IndyCar and Formula 1 World Champion Jacques Villeneuve. Worn during his second season with the fledgling Honda BAR Lucky Strike team. Villeneuve had seven top five finishes during the season with his best finish being forth which he achieved at four separate races. Villeneuve wore this helmet during various race events during the 2000 season. Then after the completion of the season, it was then refurbished and new sponsor decals were applied and redid for Villeneuve to use during the 2001 pre-season testing.
The Bell K-1 helmet was painted by Bell Europe with Villeneuve’s iconic ‘v’ design. It has a Bell date/helmet number sticker on the rear that is marked ‘2000-18’. The helmet shows signs of use and has its original radio still installed. Still attached are visor tear-offs of which the top one has been personally signed by Jacques Villeneuve. This helmet comes from Villeneuve’s personal collection and accompanied with its original Bell bag and full Certificate of Authenticity.
