MotoGP,Qatar 2014: And the award for best new helmet goes to…


Everyone gets excited when Valentino Rossi turns up to a race weekend, resplendent in new lid. These days Lorenzo brings on the same excitement  levels in the ‘fashion’ stakes – every day this blog is searched by someone after a look at one of his helmets.

If you take the time to look the aesthetics of MotoGP can be as beautiful to see as a hard fought race. Though, as with the racing, sometimes you need to dig a little deeper than the blue ribbon event for the best stuff.

So, in Academy Award style, the best helmet to be seen at Qatar goes to…

…Lorenzo Baldassarri.

2014 Baldassarri

Always nice to see someone having fun on the grid with their appearance and if Baldassarri can get his Gresini Moto2 bike into gear he will be hard to miss in this very yellow ‘Pac-Man’ effort. Having seen it in action during practice it’s quite hard to miss!

(7 is the rookie’s race number, not his Pac-Man points score!)

Serious reporting will be resumed shortly.
