Ayrton Senna helmet up for auction at Goodwood

By Staff Writer - July 4, 2018

An original Ayrton Senna driver’s helmet could sell for six figures at auction at Bonham’s Goodwood Festival of Speed auction on July 13, thedrive.com reports. The estimated price is between $79,000 and $110,000, the auctioneers say.

The F1 legend is said too have worn the helmet during a practice session at the Paul Ricard Circuit on March 2, 1994, just two months before a tragic crash took his life at the age of 34.

The Bell Vortex type SS Penske 93/94 helmet comes complete with intercom and headphones, a Bell helmet bag, and a signed letter from Pierre Van Ginneken certifying the helmet’s authenticity.

At the RM Sotheby’s Monaco auction earlier this year, Senna’s yellow Lotus Honda racing suit sold for 38,400 euros ($44,767), while his 1993 Monaco Grand Prix-winning McLaren car sold for $5 million.
