The Importance of Helmet Engineering – This Month In Professional Motorsport World

Here at GSM Performance, helping ensure your safety in motorsport events is our utmost priority. It’s no secret that a protective helmet is one of the most important pieces of safety equipment to use, as a result, it’s crucial that the companies producing them thoroughly test all of their designs & maximise their safety.

The latest issue of Professional Motorsport World features a fantastic article on the ever-evolving engineering behind the helmets that we provide from brands including Stilo & Sparco. We just had to share it, as we feel it really helps highlight the importance of helmets in the motorsport industry. Check out our exclusive preview of the article & be sure to pick up your copy in all good newsagents,

Back in 2009, Formula One driver, Felipe Massa, was racing in Hungary when a spring from his competitor’s vehicle collided with his helmet as he was travelling at 175mph. He sustained serious injuries, however, he remained in a stable condition & made a phenomenal recovery. Without the incredibly advanced helmet he was wearing at the time, which absorbed most of the impact, Massa’s incident would have proved fatal.

Helmets are extremely important throughout all types of motorsport. Whether you’re just doing track-days or you’re competing in regulated events, we’ll get you sorted with the right helmet to suit your needs. With an extensive range of helmets both online & in our showroom, contact us today to speak with our racewear specialist or book an appointment to visit us, so that we can ensure your safety behind the wheel!
