Winner Announced: Wear Your Helmet to Work Day Presented by Stilo

 

They came, they saw, they wore helmets: We received hundreds of submissions for this year's Wear Your Helmet to Work Day presented by Stilo, but at the end of the day only one could be chosen as our winner, claiming a brand new Stilo ST5 GT Helmet.

What is Wear Your Helmet to Work Day? Simple: It's the one day of the year when we can share our motorsports passion with the rest of the world (or at least the office). Strike up a shock tuning conversation by the water cooler. Berate your cubemate because you can do a driver change faster than he can move out of the way of your filing cabinet. Sleep in a meeting because your visor is tinted. You can even enjoy your safest commute of the year thanks to your trusty helmet.

Congratulations to Grassroots Motorsports Instagram follower not.my.boyfriends.car, who races her Mustang at events like UTCC and posted this winning photo:

 

We hope you enjoy your new Stilo helmet!

This was not an obvious choice for winner.  A great idea with many strong submissions.  Next year have a winner and those who have pictures highlighted here also get a significant discount from the vendor on a purchase.  I suspect several of these submissions figured they had a great shot at winning.

I mean, most Olympic athletes go home from that event empty handed, and in most cases they’ve devoted their entire lives to medaling . The honor lies in competing among such strong contenders. And yes, the competition at this year’s WYHTWD was super strong. Shoutout to everyone who took the time to shoot what were in so many cases just awesome pictures ❤️

In reply to Aaron_King :

Pretty sure it's the Naval Air Museum in Pensacola, FL. It's been going on 30 years since I've been there, but it looks like it.
