2014 Indy Legends Pro Am SVRA Multi Signed Indianapolis Motor Speedway Helmet
The Indy Legends Charity Pro–Am race is a vintage sports car race held at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Speedway, Indiana. The race takes place on the combined road course at the Speedway as part of the Sportscar Vintage Racing Association (SVRA) Brickyard Vintage Racing Invitational event weekend. The inaugural running of this event occurred in 2014. Beginning in 2019, the race has been part of the Vintage Race of Champions (VROC) series.
The race is run on the newer, modified layout of the circuit previously used for the Formula One U.S. Grand Prix, and is currently used by the IndyCar Series for the IndyCar Grand Prix. The event is contested as a Pro–Am, with each entry having two drivers. An amateur racing driver is paired with a former Indianapolis 500 or Brickyard 400 driver, and the two drivers share stints at their discretion, in the same fashion as endurance racing. The field for this race consists of as many as 34 cars, with a traditional 33-car field owing to Indianapolis 500 traditions, and a 34th entry, known as “Garage 34,” also included. However, some years have had smaller fields. The event takes place in the summer, usually at some point after the Indianapolis 500, with all proceeds from the event going to local charities.
The 2014 version of the Indy Legends Pro-Am race featured 23 Pro drivers, including Al Unser Jr., Willy T. Ribbs, Lyn St. James, Scott Goodyear, and Buddy Lazier, as well as Arie Luyendyk and Bobby Unser, just to name a few. This great looking black and gold helmet is signed by all the drivers who participated in black marker pen and would make a unique addition to any collection.
The helmet comes with a Certificate Of Authenticity.
