This weekend we vistited Filip Backlund at the IDM Race in Salzburg, Red Bull Ring. Filip is a very promising young driver from Sweden where he won the Swedish Superbike 2009 and now entered the IDM for several races. He did visit us earlier this year in Germany and had his helmet customized for him.

In March we presented for the first time our new car racing helmet SF1 to the participants of the Brasilian Porsche GT3 Cup, which took place in Estoril / Portugal. Nice people, good atmosphere and great cars!

Have a look at the beautiful painted car of Benny Lago, who is a Schuberth enthusiast and takes part in the Brasilian Porsche GT3 challenge. Benny is one of the first passionate drivers wearing a Schuberth SF1 – and he was thrilled by the wearing comfort and the design of the helmet !

We were present at the Estoril racing track on Friday before the Race and many drivers took the opportunity to discover the SF1, to try the helmet and to have a chat. They were excited to hear that Schuberth sells the helmet and for sure we will see one or the other wearing the SF1 during the next races.
If you are interested in your own SF1 contact us at carracing@schuberth.com !

New SF1 off the track

Recently the prototype of our new Formula 1 Carbon Helmet SF1 was the star in a fairly another type of photo shoot. We think it also looks awesome off the track. But please get an idea of it yourself!

Welcome to the team, Cong Fu!

We are happy that we have been able to win the Chinese DTM pilot Cong Fu “Franky” Cheng for the circle of Schuberth race drivers. Cong Fu Cheng, in Europe also known as “Franky” to keep it simple, is a driver in the AMG Mercedes team and relies officially on our carbon helmet RF1 since last race at the Nürburgring. Franky ranks among the most successful motorsports people in China. He could already celebrate many achievements in different international Formula series und was part of the McLaren sponsorship program. In the DTM he is the first Chinese ever who started in the most popular European touring car series.

During a visit in our helmet manufactory Franky could take his new helmet directly out of the hands of our CEO Marcel Lejeune. Afterwards our Head of Production Christof Wobst showed and explained him how a motorcycle helmet is produced. Franky was impressed by how much manual work is needed.

We wish Franky a successful motorsport season 2010 and are happy to have such an excellent ambassador in China.

The well known host (DMAX “Der Checker”, Sport1 “Die Autoprofis”) and tuning expert Lina van de Mars now belongs to the exclusive group of Schuberth pilots. The mechanic likes to work on cars and is a passionate driver. We are happy to support Lina with our professional race helmet Q2.

For official helmet handover Lina visited our helmet manufactury in Magdeburg. Our colleagues were very happy about her visit and Lina signed autograph cards and posed for photos

By the way: the Q2 won’t stay white too long. Soon the helmet will receive a Lina special design, probably in seventies style and with some twinkle effect. As soon as the helmet is sprayed by Jens, we will publish the pictures.

Non-brushed helmet:

Here you can see Lina with one of our engineers:
