Not much of an off season at the ArtRotondo.com shop, we’ve been hard at work and have just recently finished the first batch of IZOD IndyCar Series 2011 helmets. First off we have 2010 rookie of the year British racer Alex Lloyd’s newest helmet which has a revised designed from last season to give it the effect of speed. Below are the first helmets that Alex will be sporting in the upcoming 2011 IZOD IndyCar Series season.

Simultaneously at the ArtRotondo.com shipping dock are Graham Rahal’s new 2011 revamped design helmets.  Now being the third car in the Chip Ganassi racing team, we matured the design but continue to keep to the style of trademark ArtRotondo helmet tops. The playing cards version was created to depict Graham’s Ace hand coming into the 2011 IZOD IndyCar Series season and will hopefully give him the better hand out of the rest of the field.

The second helmet created for Rahal has commemorative fireworks for the season opener at St. Pete. This was the location where Graham Rahal celebrated becoming the youngest Indycar champion in victory lane in 2008. Now he with this helmet he will represent the start of a new season spectacle in the IZOD IndyCar Series and the start of a new era for Graham Rahal.

    Great art, but I must say i miss the helmets from the old days, nowadays, you have to see the helmets from up close to realize what exactly is going on. Too much small detail, and drivers change them all the time.
    My favorite will always be Ayrton Senna’s, simple, beautiful, instantly recognizable, and it remained the same throughout all his career. Carlos Reutemann’s was also pretty cool. Nowaydays there is so much going on in the helmets that you can barely recognize the actual design :-(
