Tribute helmets can be hit or miss. We think this one is a hit.

Circuit of The Americas™ and Bell Helmets create limited-edition

Texas-themed Star Carbon helmets!

AUSTIN, Texas (Mar. 6, 2014) – Circuit of The Americas (COTA) and Bell Helmets have partnered to

create a limited quantity of commemorative Texas-themed Star Carbon helmets. For the first time ever,

motorsports fans will have the opportunity to own a special edition helmet complete with custom

artwork honoring the Lone Star State from Chris Wood, founder and creative director of Airtrix.

“We are excited to partner with Bell, one of the legendary racing companies, to offer this one-of-a-kind

product to our fans,” said Circuit Chief Marketing Officer Geoff Moore. “The limited-edition helmet,

which celebrates our country, state, race and track, makes this a must-have for the true motorsports

fan.”

The helmet features a red, white and blue flag motif on the front with both the American and State of

Texas flags, which wraps around the rear to merge with a hardwood design reminiscent of the

floorboards in a Western saloon. The helmet is crowned with a Longhorn cattle skull, giving it a colorful

and imposing appearance. The specially designed helmet also features a horseshoe, the COTA logo and

the event logo representing the 2014 Red Bull MotoGP of The Americas.

A limited number of helmets are now available for purchase until April 13. Helmets are available for

$699.95 at http://bit.ly/COTAhelmet.
