Continuing the team’s developing “dream” theme, the Australian aboriginal dreamtime design reflects TGR’s Aussie roots, and is a stunning example of the Italian helmet company’s creative talents (even if reminds us very much of Valentino Rossi’s AGV 2007 Dreamtime lid)
Inspired by Australian aboriginal artwork and incorporating some of Remy and Luca’s favourite colours, Airoh’s designers have been able to highlight the Gardners’ proud culture and produce their own special piece of art and the dreamtime helmet is sure to be one of the team’s stars this season, alongside Remy’s Moriwaki Dream (MD250) GP3 bike.
“Our eyes popped out of our heads when we saw our new Airoh helmets for the first time,” said a grateful Luca Gardner. His brother Remy, who will showcase the helmet at his first Moto3 CEV Buckler race at Jerez later this month said, “we couldn’t believe how perfect the design is. I can’t wait to wear it at Jerez. Dad is always saying he has trouble seeing us on the track from a distance but now he won’t miss us”!
Airoh Helmets’ MotoGP Racing Development Manager Davide Trolli is also very proud of the new design. “When Wayne [Gardner] approached me about the opportunity to produce a specially designed helmet for Remy and Luca I was immediately interested. TGR are very pro active in promoting their partners and I recognised this as an excellent opportunity for Airoh to be indelibly associated with the TGR journey”.
Wayne Gardner is equally excited about the Airoh TGR design saying, “This design was a real collaboration between us and Airoh and we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful piece of art. We’re all huge fans of Airoh helmets and we look forward to working with them long into the future”.
