Helmet Collection

So, I’ve never met the guy who’s been referred to me on numerous times as “Burton-the-Painter,” but I have dined a few times in the Union Jack’s restaurant where I’m told many of his Crash-buckets are on display - along with seeing some of his artwork in the Flagroom Bar I believe...

The artist in question is Ron Burton, whose apparently done all of the BIG NAME IndyCar drivers over the years, i.e.; Mario Andretti, A.J. Foyt, Scott Pruett, George Snider, etc, just to name a few...

I’ve also been told that this is one of the largest private racing helmet collections in the world – which you can visit the helmet website by clicking here.
