Let us know if any of you see one on eBay or somewhere else. I have never given out an original race helmet. So if you see one then let us know. Thanks!"

The article also gave details of the helmet: "The Schuberth helmet was registered with the Number R-NR 074/02-13. The SNELL-Label is ST 270141. FIA label gold: AH04248. FIA Label white: Nr. 134"
