PETER GETHIN F5000 VDS TEAM HELMET
PETER GETHIN'S TEAM VDS F5000 RACING HELMET BY BELL
1970s,in dark blue with white visor and Gethin's famous Pisces shark livery to the sides, with 'RACING TEAM VDS' to the front, some damp damage to interior, signed in chinagraph pencil by all the F5000 drivers from the 1973/74 seasons including Damien McGee, Chris Craft, Patrick Sumner, Ian Ward, Keith Greene, Tony Dean, Peter Gethin, Mike Wilds, Trevor Twaites, Graham McRae, Gordon Spice and others, with Rothmans girls pink lipstick to side, offered together with the original Bell helmet bag, with Gethin’s London address tag still intact.
This helmet was presented to the manager of the Rothmans tobacco company motor racing sponsorship programme, at the end of the 1974 season in gratitude for his help during that and previous seasons.
A true timewarp piece in totally original condition. Some loss to some signatures due to the nature of the pencil material used, but a period championship-worn race helmet with unequalled provenance.
From my own private collection.
