James Hunt's (Chris Hemsworth) Helmet Sash

Stock #34124

”The closer you are to death, the more alive you feel. It's a wonderful way to live. It's the only way to drive.”

A helmet sash worn by James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) in the production of Ron Howard’s 2013 sports-drama, Rush.

Based on a true story, the film follows racing icons Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) and James Hunt during their infamous 1976 Formula One season. As their rivalry on and off the track begins to take its toll, a near-fatal injury leaves Lauda fighting for the championship and Hunt in pole position to take the title.

This helmet sash and others like it were worn by Hunt at each Formula One circuit throughout the racing season, used to keep Chris Hemsworth warm during driving sequences. The piece is made from lightweight brown material and has a strip of Velcro at the top to attach it to his racing helmet. Displaying some light wear to the Velcro from use on the production, the piece remains in very good condition.

Materials: Man-Made Woven Fibres, Velcro®.
