This weekend marks the home Grand Prix for current MotoGP™ World Championship leader Marc Marquez and to mark the Gran Premi Monster Energy de Catalunya, the Repsol Honda Team rider has once again revealed a special, one-off helmet.
Marquez has enjoyed five visits to the podium at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya over the past six seasons to the delight of the Catalan crowd as his hometown Cervera is located just 100km away.
GP de Catalunya, GP especial, esto significa: Casco especial! ????#CatalanGP, special GP, it means: special Helmet! pic.twitter.com/UD71FSOzP2— Marc Márquez (@marcmarquez93) June 13, 2019
This is the fourth special edition lid he has used in Catalonia. The first was in 2012 with a 'Thunder' helmet, whilst riding in Moto2™, followed by the 'Gaudi Mosaic' in 2015 with Marquez having styled the ‘Power Up’ helmet for the past three years in Barcelona.
This season, the five-time MotoGP™ World Champion will be wearing the 'Signature Helmet' designed and painted by Dave Designs.
“From a stroke, as if it were a signature, we designed this special helmet, drawing the elements that most identify me: the 93 and the ant,” said Marquez. “Plus, the elements that identify the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya: the main grandstand, the tower of the straight and the piano characteristic of the circuit.”
The first time we’ll see the ‘Signature Helmet’ in action will be during MotoGP™ FP1 tomorrow morning so tune in to see this thing of beauty finally take to the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
