Alonsos Birthday Helmet 2011

This year we prepared a new helmet for Fernando Alonso´s 30th Birthday on 29th of July.

As he´s a real Motorbike and Ducati-Fan (he´s driving a custom-made Desmosedici RR) we provided him with a custom-made Schuberth SR1 at the Race in Hungary.

Here are the pictures of the red SR1 and we hope some more pictures on the track will follow ! Congratulations to making 3rd in Budapest and Happy Birthday !

SR1: First race – first victory

Dear Schuberth Weblog readers,

after supplying the new SR1 to our two test-drivers Stefan Nebel and Werner Daemen , we also extended our support to international race series.

In the 2011 season we´ll start with 14 countries and more then 25 drivers from Finland to Italy, from Portugal to Poland.

As responsible Race-Coordinator, I´ll post news, pictures and comments of our new drivers on the Schuberth weblog from today on.

And today we´re exited to announce our first victory:

Right at the first Race of the dutch Superbike Championship, Arie Vos from Labour Force Racing did score the first victory in his brandnew SR1 “racing line” !

We´re very exited to have Stefan Nebel and Werner Daemen on board as our official Test-Drivers for the new SR1: We are convinced that the new partnerships will provide us with additional impetus for the development of our helmets. Both riders will work closely together with our engineers.

Stefan Nebel, KTM Superbike Team Germany, was made aware of the new Schuberth Supersports helmet by his friend and Schuberth development partner Michael Schumacher. Stefan Nebel is IDM Superbike Champion of 2003 and 2005 and Vice Champion of 2009.

Stefan did visit us 3 weeks ago and discussed the helmet features with our Head of Engineering, Motorcycle. Of course we had to make him wear his racing suit for some pictures !

With the belgian Werner Daemen, Alpha Technik Van Zon Kraftwerk BMW racing team, we had the chance to strengthen an old friendship between him and our sales director and fellow compatriot Erwin Van Hoof.

„Schuberth is a strong brand in the Benelux region and privately, I have been using Schuberth helmets on touring rides for years. To compete in professional sports with Schuberth was never a question of consideration but only a matter of availability of the relevant sports helmet. I am pleased, that the collaboration now starts“, says Daemen. Werner Daemen is the IDM Superbike Vice Champion 2010

He also visited the factory and we took the chance to shoot some photos of him taking his shell right out of the composite press.

Through our test-rider concept, we continue a business philosophy, which is already successfully implemented in Formula 1 since the year 2000. The ten-year development partnership with Michael Schumacher, in particular, still provides the Schuberth engineers important information for the continuous optimisation.

Stefan will visit us again next week getting his final design.

We´d like to wish all of you a very happy new year 2011. For us this year will be a special one – we´ll launch our first motorcycle race helmet SR1, for the first time we´ll sell our FIA-certified motorsports race helmet SF1, we´ll launch our new firefighters helmet F300 and some more models, we won´t reveal yet.

In the beginning of 2011 we would like to wish Michael Schumacher a very happy birthday – in all those years we had the honor to accompany his career

We wish to all of you and to Michael a very happy and successful 2011

A successful start of the SR1 at the Intermot

 

Finally! Our new SR1 passed the first endurance race without any problems. With our 30-people team we have introduced the new Supersport helmet to many competencies for six long days. Over 100.000 visitors stormed our Schuberth booth, tried and evaluated the SR1. The positive feedback we received gave us great pleasure and at this point we want to Thank Everyone for the huge interest!

 

Moreover, our Flip-up helmet C3 also kept us on our feet. At all times we offered two full helmet sizes to try on. Although, due to the high resonance over the weekend the incredible demand would have still been difficult to satisfy even with the availability of four helmet sizes.

 

Furthermore, we would like to congratulate Fernando Alonso to his 3rd rank in the Japan-GP. His helmet besides helmets from our other F-1-pilots was one of the main attractions on our booth.
