Bell Racing Company will be returning with the 20 year old Canadian pilot for 2015 with the McHappy Day helmet Contest. The relationship between Bell and Teixeira began in 2013 for the Ronald McDonald Charity McHappy Day Event. Bell Racing continues their support of the young driver for the third year in a row.
"It’s a pleasure to have Bell Racing with us for a third consecutive year. Each year the helmet seems to turn heads no matter where we go. Our knowledge of the product represents everything Bell stands for and we will continue to represent Bell racing in the best possible way," said Teixeira.
On May 6th McDonalds' national McHappy day including greater Toronto locations represented the Bell RS7. Along with the winning design and helmet of McHappy Day 2013 and 2014 editions of the GP.2, GP2.K and RS.7.The 2015 McHappy Day RS.7 edition will be showcased with Bell Racing at this years PRI show.
Painting the piece for 2015 will be the very talented Tag Gasperian of Tagger Designs based in southern California. Tagger Designs is known for his work in the motocross industry and is set to make headlines in the touring car, open wheel and karting business. We believe Tagger designs to be one of the best helmet painters in the business and this collaboration should showcase what his helmets are capable of representing.
“We looked at Tagger as one of our finalists for the contest. Once we looked into the type of work Tag had produced on motorbike helmets it was clear that this was a perfect fit. We knew Tagger wanted to get into the four wheel industry and think this will display his work very well.” –Rui Teixeira
