Shane Byrne 2016 British Superbike Championship helmet

Shane Byrne British Superbike Championship gold helmet

Shane ‘Shakey’ Byrne claimed his fifth MCE British Superbike championship title with one race to go in the season by finishing sixth, right behind his rival Leon Haslam in fifth at Brands Hatch.

Shane Byrne said:

“The way we have worked this year has been key for the championship because as I was very keen not to rush or short cut anything and we took on a new project with the Panigale R and Ducati have given us some great support. We had a lot of work to do and our team worked really well, and I worked well with my crew chief Giovanni. It took me seven races to actually win a race on the Ducati and we turned a bike that hasn’t won a race in a number of years to a bike that has won nine and a title.”

No other rider has won the British Superbike Championship five times and to celebrate the achievement Shoei presented Shakey Byrne with a stunning looking gold helmet to wear on his warm-down lap.

Alvaro Bautista’s ‘Japan’ helmet at Laguna Seca

Alvaro Bautista Helmet
Rizla Suzuki rider Alvaro Bautista is racing with a new custom Shoei helmet that was designed by Troy Lee Designs to support for the people of Japan following the tragedy there earlier this year.

This beautiful paint-scheme has been created by Troy Lee Designs’ Japanese designer Maki Ushiroyama and features all the flags of the fourteen countries on the MotoGP calendar, with pride of place going to the Japanese ‘Nisshōki’ or ‘Hinomaru’ – as it is more commonly known – on the top of the helmet. The colours of all nations is to represent the global support for Japan following the tragedy in March and an added message in Japanese translates as ‘Ganbare Nippon’, which literally means ‘Cheer up Japan, do your best and don’t give up!’

Bautista will also use the same helmet to race at the Indianapolis MotoGP – after which, it will be auctioned to raise money for a Japanese charity involved in the relief aid.
