MIKE HAWTHORN RACE HELMET

MyLaps-Ben

Description:

 

In 1958, Mike Hawthorn became Britain's first World Drivers' Champion in a FERRARI  and this lightweight Everoak helmet was used by Mike during the late fifties. It has a black lacquer outer with a cork, black leather and black webbing lined shell, black leather chin straps and peak and is fitted with a Herbert Johnson visor. It's formerly the property of Mike's great chum, RRC 'Rob' Walker, who we believe was given it by Mike's mum, Winifred, after the funeral in 1959. Rob duly gave it to Tom Wheatcroft in 1968 and he, in turn, gifted it to his son Kevin on his 21st Birthday. It was proudly on display at the Donington Grand Prix Collection from 1973 until 2005 and the helmet is accompanied by a Letter of Provenance from Tom & Kevin Wheatcroft
