Oct 15, 2021 | Stilo, Wear Your Helmet to Work Day, #WearYourHelmetToWork

That’s right folks, today, October 15, is our annual Wear Your Helmet to Work Day, the only day of the year that not only lets you show the world how much you like driving race cars, but also gives you the chance to win a brand-new helmet from Stilo.

Remember, in order to ensure you entry is counted, take a picture of yourself at work wearing a helmet and share it one of three ways:

  1. Follow Grassroots Motorsports on social media, post your photos with the hashtag #WearYourHelmetToWork, and tag Grassroots Motorsports. 
  2. Upload your photo directly to our Facebook page on the official event post.
  3. Post your photo in the comments section below.

Regardless of where you post your photo, it must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. Eastern (today, October 15) to be considered.

Work at home? Not working? You can still submit a photo–think mowing the lawn or changing a diaper while helmeted.

This may look like a staged shot for wear your helmet to work day, but in truth* I find myself exceedingly cautious around open flames these days.

*Not actually true

I can't say it enough, but thanks to Stilo for making a helmet that likely saved my life and most definitely saved my face. Visors down folks!

i bought this helmet the weeke before the $2019 challenge. My old helmet expired and would not pass nhra tech. This is what i could get in time. 

At the challenge, mndsm free handed the solvable maze all over it in the host hotel parking lot. 

Its been a good helmet, and is pictured here at my desk where i do all my billing for my job in social work. Couldn't reallly show much due to laws....

Having seen the helmet, it deserves a photo of the helmet to show off the amazing artwork.

The bar has been set high. I have been following your recovery from what has been shared publicly from afar. I admire your courageousness and willingness to highlight the true importance of safety equipment. Thank you and the utmost respect.

Ah, another year, another year WFH. 

a little has changed since 2020 (below), definitely got more organized! visited GRM HQ, and did some work on myself, too.

I still don't have a helmet.  *sigh*

Ok, you caught me, I do have a motorcycle helmet and forgot to bring it.

Sorry, didn't sleep well last night.

A slow start to the day when you're retired.

GT done, now to restore the Healey that started it all.

I'm on vacation in Florida today, but I did bring my helmet to get my picture in front of the world famous Motorsports Marketing building for today's festivities.

Too bad I couldn't go in. There was a nice selection of cars inside. Maybe next year.

No worries. BikeToberfest is certainly making traffic interesting though.
