1981 Gilles Villeneuve Ferrari helmet.
This super rare original GPA helmet was used by Gilles extensively in 1981 while driving the Ferrari 126 CK. There is a fantastic photo in Allan De La Plante’s book where you can see him at the 1981 Canadian GP (3rd place) wearing it, with the very same tears in the SMEG sponsor logo. This was also worn at Gilles’ historic 1981 Monaco GP win! It is complete with a letter from the president of GPA and the original GPA carrying bag.
This is an amazing piece of history from Enzo Ferrari’s favourite driver, and it’s expensive.
