It is now a longstanding tradition that Rossi will always bring a custom one-off helmet design to the Italian GPs on the MotoGP calander and over the years he has raced in many memorable designs.
For the 2016 Misano MotoGP Valentino Rossi produced a special helmet that the fans loved that was based on Rossi’s favorite film – “The Blues Brothers”.
The design featured Valentino and his best friend Uccio dressed up at the main characters from the film, with the slogan ‘Sweet Home Misano’ printed on the lid. The helmet also featured various other iconic imagery from the film, like the police car known as ‘The Bluesmobile’.
The design was created by Aldo Drudi and you can see a hyperlapse video below of how his studio created this iconic helmet step by step below
By the way, AGV have just made this helmet available to buy as a limited edition in their amazing, but very expensive, top-line Pista GP R helmet. See it here.
