Charity auction for Hayden’s Laguna Seca Helmet

Ducati North America, Nicky Hayden and the Make-A-Wish Foundation are pleased to announce today a charity auction for the helmet Nicky wore en route to a podium finish at the Red Bull Indianapolis Grand Prix.

Two weeks ago, at Nicky Hayden’s first Indianapolis race aboard a Ducati, Nicky unveiled this special helmet to celebrate what would be a historic moment. With his home crowd cheering him on, Nicky took his first podium of the year and his first podium while riding for Ducati.

The entire race weekend saw crowds cheering for Hayden at every turn and now he is offering the helmet he wore during the race to help the Make-A-Wish foundation enrich the lives of children during their greatest moments of need. This hand painted helmet is signed by Nicky and comes with a letter of authenticity from Starline Designers.

Nicky Hayden Speaks…

"I was really proud of how the helmet turned out for Indy and the vibe that it got," said Nicky. "It was truly a very special helmet and it was an honor to wear. I know how lucky I am and feel that it’s my duty to try to give something back when possible. What better way than by helping make kids dreams come true. It’s great to be part of Make A Wish. I’ve been a part of their team for 5 years and have done some neat things which always puts smiles on faces!

In honor of the new Nicky Hayden Edition 848, the opening bid on the helmet will be $848. The link to the auction is: Here
