Leclerc helmet sold for record amount

The helmet used by Charles Leclerc at the Monaco Grand Prix sold for a record amount at a charity auction.

To help Emilia-Romagna’s relief fund after the devastating floods, Leclerc donated his helmet, racing suit, gloves and boots to Sotheby’s.

The color of the helmet was done in memory of his father, retaining some details of Hervé Leclerc’s striped theme, but in Charles’ signature red and white style. The helmet was signed by the rider and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

The new owner bought the helmet for 306,000 euros – a new record price for a racing helmet in the history of auctions. The previous record was set in 2019 when Ayrton Senna’s helmet from 1990 was sold for 162,000 euros.

Leclerc’s racing suit sold for €61,200, boots for €20,400, gloves for €42,000 (AU$67,500), for a total of €429,600.

“The success of the auction not only reflects the great talent of Charles Leclerc, but also the generosity and support of enthusiasts around the world. The proceeds will have a significant impact on the lives of those affected by the recent floods in Emilia-Romagna,” the auction’s press service said in a statement.
