What always fascinated me from an very early age (in fact it was the thing that waked my interest for racing) were the racing drivers helmets with all those different colours and lids.
The drivers were kind of modern knights in their coat of arms, very much recognizable from their helmet colours, even from far away on the grandstands.
Today the drivers helmets are hidden behind safety devices and most of the personal designs are interchangable and as complicated as the cars they are driving...but thats another story.
Maybe there are some forum members who have knowledge of the reason and idea behind the personal designs and what made the drivers to choose them.
As an example let me start with Ivan Capelli.
He spend days an nights in creating a personal design but wasn´t satisfied with the outcome. One day he`d seen a picture of the America´s Cup yacht Azzurra, that finally inspired him for his own design. https://www.bing.com...=sbi&ajaxhist=0
