A Simpson racing helmet that has been signed by some of the greatest champions Formula 1 has ever seen is heading to auction to raise money for children's charities.

The helmet is owned by Autoweek reporter Al Pearce who began collecting the autographs of retired and active racing drivers back in 2007- racking up an impressive total of 22 signatures from some of the sports biggest names including Michael Schumacher, Mario Andretti and  Fernando Alonso.

After years of collecting, Pearce has decided to offer the helmet at auction on May 14th at RM Sotheby's and will donate the proceeds across four children's charities, the Victory Junction Gang Camp, the Kyle Petty Charity Ride, the Jeff Gordon Children’s Foundation and the Jimmie Johnson Foundation.
