2009 Helio Castroneves Signed Team Penske Race Worn Suit
Team Penske Simpson race suit worn by the IndyCar veteran and three-time Indianapolis 500 Winner Helio Castroneves.
The very popular Brazilian driver used this suit during the 2009 season (probably in one of the Canadian races in Edmonton or Toronto). Castroneves would have two wins during the season, one in Texas and, most importantly, his 3rd win at the Indy 500. He also had five other top five finishes, including two podiums.
This vibrant suit was used in the last season that Team Penske cars appeared in the Philip Morris Marlboro red and white chevron livery. The suit used in conjunction with that livery is in the Marlboro Red with a white band around the front torso which has ‘Team Penske’ lettering. There is a large white patch again with the ‘Team Penske’ lettering on the back of the suit. Many team sponsor/supplier branding logos are embroidered on the arms and chest including Honda, Verizon, PTC, Boss and Hino Trucks to name but a few. There is also the Indianapolis Motor Speedway centenary ‘Wings & Wheels’ iconic logo embroidered on the right arm.
The suit has been personally signed by Helio Castroneves (see picture) and comes with a full Certificate of Authenticity.
