What are Racing Heads?

Racing Heads are a collection of 140 unique pixelated helmets, all modelled on some of the world’s best drivers from F1, F2 etc. They are made by a motorsport fan for other fans. Each helmet is individually handmade to the best of my abilities (however there is only so much detail I can fit onto a 32×32 pixel grid!). The Racing Heads range in price depending on the driver, for example Senna’s helmet will be worth more than Latifi’s. My hope is to make a range of different price points, allowing a variety of people to become collectors. I’m really excited to see where this goes. I’ve put a lot of hours and love into these helmets.

From Release

Every entry has a chance of being gifted a special pre-sale 3D helmet.

Why should I buy?

Each NFT is a piece of art work. I’ve handmade each one, they aren’t exact replicas of the original helmets as there’s only so much detail you can fit onto a 32×32 grid! They are the perfect size for profile pictures etc. NFTs are still very new, so if you’re considering getting into NFTs and you’re an F1 fan, then there’s no better place to look….

You can think of these as collectables, just like trading cards, as well as an investment. If you buy a rising star’s helmet now, in a couple of years they could be on the F1 grid and their helmet could be on the F1 grid and their helmet could have a higher value. 

Utilities

As if you need any more reasons… here’s some extra benefits: 

– When you buy a Racing Head from mint, you will be entered into a one-off draw. Each draw will take place after 20 mint sales. The prize for each draw is a pre-release 3D helmet (which can be worn in the Metaverse).

– If you own 2 F1 Racing Heads from the same team (according to 2021 pairings) you will be gifted a special racing car NFT for that team. This will only apply to the first 3 owners of each pair. To claim this reward contact me via the discord.

– You have a say in the future of the NFT collection, by receiving access to the Racing Head Holders’ discord channel.

– Automatic early release access for holders for future releases – Indy Car, Nascar, MotoGP

I’m a 19 year old student from the UK, I’m a big F1 fan and have recently become really interested in the brand new world of NFTs. I really wanted to get involved in the NFT space, so by combining my two interests – a Formula One NFT collection seemed like the perfect route to go! I’ve been planning this project for a while now and I hope by using my following on Instagram and Tiktok, I am able to make this project successful!

 

(Doing this project alone is quite an undertaking, especially along with Uni work, so special mention to my parents for being super supportive <3)

It will be on the Polygon blockchain. This is both better for the environment (lowest electricity usage) and requires lower fees when buying and selling. To change Ethereum to Polygon use a bridge to Polygon e.g https://bridge.umbria.network/bridge/ethereum-polygon/eth

NFTs are Non Fungible Tokens which are bought and stored on a blockchain using crypto currency. To put it into simpler terms; it's a digital asset which has value - you can chose to sell these on or keep them. An example is the Bored Ape Yacht Club.

NFTs are still relatively new, getting in early is vital. NFTs (like mine) are also collectibles - these can gain value in the future or serve as a keepsake!

I doesn't quite work like that... I could just copy a version of the Mona Lisa from Google images and print it off - doesn't mean I own it or that I can sell it 🙂

The prices will range from 0.015 ETH (~£30) to 0.1 ETH (~£200) depending on the drivers helmet. Investing in a cheaper driver from F2/F3 could prove useful if they end up in F1...

Whitelists allow you to get in early and buy the NFTs before the initial release date at a slightly cheaper price. There will be 10 whitelist spots. To get into one of these you must complete some tasks which will be released in the discord. 

If you own 2 F1 Racing Heads from the same team (according to 2021 pairings) you will be gifted a special racing car NFT for that team. This will only apply to the first 3 owners of each pair. To claim this reward contact me via the discord. For example, if you own Racing Heads of Verstappen and Perez at the same time and one of the 3 cars remains, you are entitled to a Red Bull Car NFT!
