The competition was inundated with entries, particularly from young drivers looking to start or develop their racing careers. To successfully answer, participants needed knowledge not just of helmet technology but also other safety equipment and general medical knowledge. Correct answers were received from all over the world to win the Stilo ST4 Zero, the lightest F1-approved helmet available.

Competition winner Sedgwick has over five years experience in karting and is now making the step up to car racing. The youngster was recently crowned the Ginetta Junior Scholarship winner, securing a fully-funded season in the 2014 Ginetta Junior Championship, a support category of the British Touring Car Championship.

Sedgwick said: “The helmet is amazing and it is fantastic to win this great prize. The SAFEisFAST website has been a great source of information to help me move from karting to cars. I would recommend it to any driver.”

Bobby Rahal, Road Racing Drivers Club president, said: “The Stilo Helmet competition was a great success, not only in terms of entries but also in getting young racing drivers to engage with motor sport safety. The ST4 Zero is one of the best helmets on the market and I am sure it will be of great benefit to Alex in his early career.”

www.SAFEisFAST.com is a free online resource also offering video tutorials on safety, fitness, mental skills, race craft, career development, sponsorship, marketing and more to assist the careers of drivers in all forms of racing. The website was created by the Road Racing Drivers Club (RRDC), led by president Bobby Rahal, in conjunction with the FIA Institute.

Since its launch, there have been over 525,000 views of the online tutorials from visitors representing more than 160 countries. The videos also have been made available to a wider global audience with the inclusion of closed-captions in 71 different languages.

The next safety competition, starting today, offers drivers an opportunity to win a HANS Device, Sport II model from Simpson. Click www.safeisfast.com/contests/2-show-your-safety-iq-and-win-a-hans-device-from-simpson for more details.
