Post your helmets all stickered up with event stickers and more!

Going to frequent track events can get stickers plastered all over the sides and back of your helmets. Some are boring flea market color tags, but some are cool and have years and events on them.

Post your helmets even if they have no events and are just stickered up with brands!

I kept mine nice and simple with just a visor decal. It's the same one the Corvette Racing GTLM drivers have -- because I had the guy who paints their helmets print me the exact decal.

I would guess the black and red one is some sort of regional Audi club.

Yep, Audi North East; I think they used to be called Audi NE Quattro, hence the lingering Audi NEQ.

They run some of the best HPDE events over here, have a strong instructor training program, and are great bunch of people.

Boy do I have a helmet photo for this. To be supplemented. Mine looks like an Ohio State University football helmet.

Bell GP3 intake manifold while I wait for my Karbonius and the salt to go away

Pro tip - if you're thinking of getting a matte finish Bell helmet, don't, unless you don't have fingernails. Even a high speed lightning bug strike will take some of it off.

My next one will be exposed carbon with clear but I think I'll stick with this scheme it's fun. Still gotta check off my must-do-before-dead tracks like COTA, Barber, Sebring, Daytona, Glen, LRP, VIR, Sears Point, Seca, Mosport in north america and then Silverstone, Mt. Panorama, Suzuka, Spa, Interlagos... gonna need a bigger head

I tried the track decal on my matte black helmet, it looked silly with white, but yours looks nice with red.

I ended up starting to them on the side of my black Craftsman toolbox.

My shop told me this years ago. Matte black looks good the day you buy it, and then it goes downhill very quickly. If your hands are dirty, you will leave oily fingerprints and marks all over it which are hard to clean.

My gloss white Arai looks just as good as the day I bought it. If it ever does get a chip in the finish, a white paint touch-up pen will easily hide it.

None of the events I go to have stickers so not counting smudges, my helmet is clean.
