This Nomex balaclava is the genuine article worn by Adrian Sutil for Sahara Force India - driving the VJM03. Sold as a piece of team heritage under official licence by SportPesa Racing Point.
Nomex is subjected to rigorous testing prior to approval for racing; the main requirement is that it should be able to resist an open flame at a temperature of over 300 degrees Celsius for at least 10 seconds.
Worn by Sutil to race in the 2010 season, this piece of racing heritage has been professionally framed by our sports framing team. The race wear is professionally framed in a sleek black box frame, double mounted with an acid-free conservation grade cream/black mount-board, this essential piece of F1™ safety kit is transformed into impressive artwork for your home or office wall. The frame is finished off with top-grade acrylic ‘artscreen’ instead of glass to protect this important piece of memorabilia in shipping. You won’t tell the difference between the artscreen and glass once it’s on your wall. The Nomex is attached to the mountboard with protective ‘invisible tags’ to ensure no damage to the original teamwear.
The balaclava omes complete with an official team certificate of authenticity. Frame measures 58cm high x 31cm wide x 5cm deep.
