This balaclava and others like it were worn by Niki Lauda at each Formula One circuit throughout the racing season until his untimely crash at the infamous Nürburgring circuit. The piece of race equipment is made of off-white fire retardant material by the race equipment manufacturer OMP. Displaying some light wear to the stitching from its use on the production, the piece remains in very good condition and is presented on a custom-made display base featuring the film’s title artwork.
This item is an original asset used in the production of the 2013 film RUSH. The asset is made available through a partnership between Prop Store and Exclusive Media. This is not a replica, but rather an original piece from the making of the film.
This item comes with a Prop Store Certificate of Authenticity.
