Arai Goes to Hollywood
But in true Hollywood fashion, the real action for Arai's American staffers and two of the motorcycle industry's top helmet painters lay behind the scenes...
"The schedule was beyond belief. We owe a huge debt to custom paintersArtco and Pro Concepts, who really rose to the occasion and helped make it possible for us."
Weston wanted one more thing emphasized. "This wasn't one ofthose deals where we had to pay a ton of money for our exposure. Theycame to us because of our reputation, because I understand they talked to a number of race-car drivers and ours was the name they kept hearing as the best. Which is really pretty nice."
Among the Arai car-racing helmets featured in "Driven" are theGP-4 MkIII for the A and B drivers and GP-3k for the C and Ddrivers. But motorcyclists weren't totally shut out: Arai's VX-PRO SX/MX off-road helmet made into the action for the pit-crew tire guys as well.
