MotoGP: An Argentina helmet special from Marquez

26/04/2014

Time to look at some helmet art!

Marc Marquez promised something special for the first GP in Argentina for 15 years and here is the artwork:

This design is so nice it’s a shame the blue didn’t cover more of the helmet. A nice tribute to Argentina, though if you live there it may cost a house to buy the no doubt soon-to-be-available replica, which is a shame.

All the usual graphpics are incorporated, number and ant, with great use of the race nations national flag to supply the colour palette for the rear of the helmet.

Glad it is a awesome and the design is at the back, it means everyone else should get to see plenty of it as we watch the rest of the field try to track him back down (although, this is MotoGP, so you never know…)
