Circuit of the Americas (COTA) and Bell Helmets have partnered to create a limited quantity of commemorative Texas-themed Star Carbon helmets. For the first time ever, motorsports fans will have the opportunity to own a special edition helmet complete with custom artwork honoring the Lone Star State designed by custom painter Chris Wood, founder and creative director of Airtrix.
“We are excited to partner with Bell, one of the legendary racing companies, to offer this one-of-a-kind product to our fans,” said Circuit Chief Marketing Officer Geoff Moore. “The limited-edition helmet, which celebrates our country, state, race and track, makes this a must-have for the true motorsports fan.”
The helmet features a red, white and blue flag motif on the front with both the American and State of Texas flags, which wraps around the rear to merge with a hardwood design reminiscent of the floorboards in a Western saloon. The helmet is crowned with a Longhorn cattle skull, giving it a colorful and imposing appearance. The specially designed helmet also features a horseshoe, the COTA logo and the event logo representing the upcoming 2014 Red Bull MotoGP of the Americas.
