Speed, Safety, and Art Merge to Benefit the SPCA for Monterey County
Mazda and Sparco USA Join to Benefit Monterey County SPCA
Attention racers and race fans! This is your chance to help the SPCA of Monterey County, California, and take home your own animal-themed Sparco USA race helmet!
The folks at Mazda Motorsports have always had a soft spot for the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA). When Mazda Motorsports joined forces with the SPCA of Monterey County, California, back in 2007, donations poured in and racers and race fans alike took home new adopted animals.
This year, Mazda and Sparco USA have teamed up with some talented artists to create four hand-painted race helmets, each appealing to art lovers, animal advocates, and race fans.
“We’ve had so much fun working with the Mazda racing community for almost a decade now. Thanks to Sparco USA for donating the helmets and the four artists who donated their considerable talents, 100% of the proceeds raised will benefit the ongoing work of the SPCA for Monterey County,” said Beth Brookhouser, SPCA director of community outreach.
Artists include Chris Galligan, a California native whose whimsical style has won over pet lovers and designers worldwide; Patrick McDonnell, creator of the beloved MUTTS comic strip whose art has also been featured on past Mazda race cars; Bill Patterson, resident artist for Mazda Raceway; and Truman Pollard, a retired senior designer for Mazda.
