Susie Wolff – Schuberth female driver No.3

Welcome to Schuberth Susie Wolff !

With Susie we´re supplying the Schuberth SF1 racing helmet to another female racedriver

With Claudia Hürtgen (ADAc GTMasters), Danica Patrick (IndyCar Series) it´s the third women driving on the race circuits of the world with our helmet – and we´re really proud of all three!.

Susie became official test-driver for the Williams Formula-1 team this year and drives DTM since years (2006-2012 for Mercedes Benz). With the official presentation of the new Williams formula-1 racecar she did send us over some nice shots:

The motorsport season 2012 has ended and on many small and not so small occasions we at Schuberth had the luck to be a part of it. The 2012 season has been a very exciting and emotional one for us. Living legends, celebrated stars and surprising newcomers – they´ve all been there. And we´d like to say thank you to all our Schuberth-Riders for all these great achievements and want to present some of them in this special review.

Stoffel Vandoorne
A real impressive performance came from our Belgian driver Stoffel Vandoorne. He won the Euroseries Formula Renault 2.0 championship with 10 points difference. Ever since the World Series has been the talent pool for upcoming Formula-1 stars and we´re looking forward to see much more of this talented young man.

Bruno Spengler
Another championship won by a Schuberth-Driver: The DTM, the most challenging touring car championship, won by Franco-Canadian Bruno Spengler. Many times did he prove he could be the first crossing the finish line – since 2005 he runs in one of the most advanced touring series worldwide and finished as runner-up in two seasons. But not many would have bet on the championship in the first year after the return of the BMW-team ! Well done Bruno

Erwan Nigon
Just in 2011 did Schuberth start to supply professional motorcycle racer with it´s SR1 helmet. All the more we are excited that our French Schuberth-Rider Erwan Nigon did succeed in the International German Motorcycle championship (IDM). Whoever had the luck to meet Erwan in person and experience this humble and polite person was astonished how much eagerness and dedication he could show on the track. We just can´t wait for the next season with Erwan as our top Schuberth motorcycle rider.

Penz13.com
It took us a little bit by surprise when we received the news of winning the Endurance Superstock Worldchampionship with the penz13-team. Second year in motorcycle racing and already a World Champion! Congratulations to Rico Penzkofer and his team penz13 with Pedro Vallcaneras (E), Michal Filla (CZ), Gregory Vastre (B) and Arie Vos (NL). Moreover we take our hat off to Rico participating in two of the most challenging motorcycle races in the world: The Isle of Man Tourist Trophy and his goodbye race at Macau, where this picture was taken – close call!

Nico Hülkenberg
Back to Formula 1: An impressive season by Nico Hülkenberg. With his team Sahara Force India he did not only deliver continuously good results, but also achieved some very respectable standings. We´re happy for him that his performance brought him to a regular cockpit in the promising Sauber F1 Team. This foto has been taken when he visited us at Schuberth for customizing his new SF1 helmet.

Fernando Alonso
The international press did already say anything that can be said about this spectacular Formula 1 season and it´s highlight race at Interlagos. And we know that a top performer like Fernando can only be mildly happy about a second place. Obviously we hoped for another title for Ferrari – but now we like to congratulate Fernando for his unbelievable spirit and fight shown till the last lap of the last race. For us you are the most inspiring Formula 1 driver.

Michael Schumacher
Last but not least we´d like to honor our friend Michael Schumacher. Since 11 years we work together very closely. Many developments and innovations have their origin in his pursuit of perfection. Most of our achievements were really his achievements: we could celebrate 4 out of 7 World Championships with him. We take off our hat – or more precisely our helmet – to honor this outstanding athlete. Michael, we´ll miss you on the track. But at the same time we´re happy that we can still continue to profit of your experience and your knowledge now that you ended your professional career – looking forward!

The Pit Crews
Without them: no wheel would be turning: the Pit Crews. Representing all the Pit Crews in all the series we´d like to thank you all with this picture choosen from the Scuderia Ferrari Pit Crew.

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!

Porsche GT3 Brasil Cup 096

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 !

Porsche GT3 Brasil Cup 058

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.
