Ronnie Peterson, known by the nickname ‘Super Swede’ was a two-time runner-up in the FIA F1 Drivers’ Championship. Peterson joined Colin Chapman’s Team Lotus in the 1973 season, partnering defending champion Emerson Fittipaldi. During his first two seasons with Lotus, Peterson took seven victories. After spending the 1977 season with Tyrrell, he moved back to Lotus for the 1978 season as number two driver to Mario Andretti. Peterson scored two wins, and finished second in the Drivers’ Championship standings.
This very good replica is extremely rare, a very hard helmet to replicate with its unique peak and visor combination that only Ronnie sported. This helmet looks superb in and out with only a very few minor marks which is remarkable considering its age, comes with a 1970 Snell classification, and is one of the ultimate and most recognizable classic F1 helmets.
Sure to be the center-piece of any F1 collection, helmet bag included.
