As many of you know i am a professional race car driver with a niece who suffers from Rett Syndrome. I designed this helmet along with the help of my good friends at Savage Designs in honor of Dionne and all Rett Syndrome girls around the world. October was Rett Syndrome awareness month and the color purple is well known in the Rett Syndrome community, so i wanted to incorporate purple in the design, accenting with the Rett Syndrome Research Trust logos, and the purple ribbon on back. Every time i put this helmet on during my 2015 Pirelli World Challenge season i thought of Dionne. Her daily determination to accomplish goals that we all take for granted always gave me some extra motivation to win, and to win for her. This helmet saw many podiums, a couple of victories and took myself to the Runner Up position in the driver Championship. But most of all it raised awareness for Rett Syndrome and i was proud to wear it. Will Ship world wide.
But now its your turn to own it. This helmet is a one off, and will never be replicated.

Diagnosed almost exclusively in girls, symptoms typically appear in toddlerhood. Many children with Rett are unable to speak, walk or use their hands. Breathing problems, feeding tubes, seizures, anxiety, gastrointestinal and orthopedic issues are common.Despite the debilitating nature of the disorder our girls are so much more than a laundry list of symptoms. Their beauty and their strength inspire and motivate us.Rett Syndrome stands apart from other neurological disorders due to the dramatic reversibility of symptoms in animal models. Our confidence that Rett Syndrome is curable guides our every decision.
