This helmet has been in the works for a few months now, we originally got designing back in April after Scott had seen the pics of the helmet we did for Jake Parsons, he called me and said he loved the colour concept and wanted to do something similar for Bathurst. One of the first ideas we discussed was the LED track map and it just grew from there, the design is based around his regular helmets, this time with a chrome gold base for the pin line, black pearl replacing the white and matte navy blue for the normal Volvo blue. The light blue pattern work is made up of blueprints of a heap of parts the GRM guys manufacture for the cars, they actually gave me the CAD files of all the parts and let us use what we wanted with no restrictions. There is wheels, fuel pumps, suspension components, alternators, gears, gear levers, steering wheels, etc, all that finished in a blue glow. The back features the full list of team members along with the regular kiwi bird and a snail this time for co-driver “Frenchie”, and a special thanks to all his supporters from the past and present.
A big thanks to Jacob from Unicol Visual for the last minute video work, Together Tales for the photos (we will post these later this week), LA Concept Furniture for the track maps and Scotty for trusting my ideas and allowing me to do my thing.
