Special Hayden helmet for The Brickyard

Special Hayden helmet for The Brickyard

Nicky Hayden will promote the ‘Make a Wish’ foundation with a special helmet design at the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix.

American MotoGP star Nicky Hayden will be wearing a special edition helmet as he laps the famous Indianapolis circuit this weekend on his Ducati Desmosedici GP9.

The 2006 MotoGP World Champion will enjoy massive support from the home crowd at the twelfth round of the season and he is keen to show his own support for the ‘Make a Wish’ foundation, whose logo will be displayed on his new helmet.

He explained, “I will wear a special helmet, but this time it really is special. It will carry the Make a Wish logo and other special designs, and after the race we will action it off. All the money will go toward the foundation which helps kids’ dreams come true. I have worked with this charity for five years now and it always feels good to help out such a solid cause, and yes, I have already made my wish for the weekend!”
