Give that man a prize!

Strange choice though, I don't think he's raced since the final round at Viersel in 1995.

Indeed, he has stopped after the last race.
I myself would have chosen a different picture.

I also don't think Gust would allow the helmet to pass scrutineering!

Gust Lacroix (known internationally for the size of his eyebrows) likes all the helmets to be really, really bright orange. He is due to be scrutineering in Genk.
For example I saw him fail a new Bell helmet that was supplied from the factory painted orange for powerboat racing as not bright enough!

If you've not raced in Europe before and intend to do Genk then you should at least do the Diamond Race first. Then you'll have some idea what to expect and won't be so shocked on the second lap of the first race in Genk.
