A mystery for dozens of years, this rare piece of Australian motorsport history was spotted and purchased by an astute collector at a local market. Originally thought to be the helmet of Australian open-wheel star Stan Jones, it was later verified to be the first go-kart helmet of 1980 world Formula 1 champion Alan Jones. “AJ” has personally provided the background story of the helmet which he has since autographed. There is just one of these in existence and Jones is just one of two Australian F1 World Champions. Pieces don’t come rarer than this AGV helmet from the early 60s which comes complete with plenty of stone chips!
