“Jim Clark was the best of the best. He was my boyhood hero.”
This is a World Exclusive half-scale replica of the iconic helmet worn by Jim Clark – the most successful Formula 1 driver of all time and is now available to pre-order.
Jim Clark achieved 33 pole positions and won 25 races from his 72 Grands Prix starts, all for Team Lotus. He is remembered for his ability to drive and win in all types of cars and series, including a Lotus-Cortina, with which he won the 1964 British Touring Car Championship; Indianapolis 500, which he won in 1965; Rallying, where he took part in the 1966 RAC Rally of Great Britain in a Lotus Cortina; and sports cars. He competed in the Le Mans 24 Hour race in 1959, 1960 and 1961, finishing second in class in 1959 driving a Lotus Elite, and finishing third overall in 1960, driving an Aston Martin DBR1.
The Jim Clark Trust is proud to be partnering with both Classic Team Lotus and The Signature Store to produce this authorised, limited edition replica in half-scale. A donation from the sale of every helmet goes directly to The Jim Clark Trust (Registered Charity No. SC046092).
The half-scale replica will be the classic open-face helmet that Jim sported throughout his career, but specifically, the ‘Grand Prix’ helmet from 1965/66, featuring the deep blue shell, white peak with a three stud fixing, cloth strap and metal buckle. The helmet will be supplied in a soft bag and presented in a branded box, all fully authorized by Classic Team Lotus and ourselves.
This helmet is available to pre-order. The final price will be £149.95. To secure your helmet, please place your pre-order of £29.95 (which acts a deposit) and we will be in touch when the helmets are ready to be shipped to take the remaining balance, alternatively pay in full. We anticipate delivery to be late 2020, but this is subject to change.
“He was my hero, and forever will be. He was a special man, one of a kind, the like we have never seen since.” Jackie Stewart
