In the mid-1960s, Formula Ford was introduced and one of the first privateers was Roy Turner in a Lotus. Roy raced for several years and often was on the same card as F1 races. He bought a new helmet and had the vendor's wife paint Andy Capp (a Daily Mirror comic strip) cartoons on the side and at one of the meetings, possibly Spa in 1968, he had F1 race drivers of the day, sign the helmet. Roy died in 2015 and left the helmet to the vendor. Signatures are from John Surtees, Jackie Stewart, Mike Spence, Chris Amon, Bruce McLaren, Tony Lanfranchi and Denny Hulme.
