        LAKE BARRINGTON, IL, October 24, 2004 – Northstar Motorsports, the countries premiere safety equipment company, has added Arai auto racing helmets and Piloti driving shoes to expand its offering of only the best in motorsports safety equipment.

Northstar has recently been named the Midwest Distributor for Arai auto racing helmets. Arai is one of the leading helmets in most forms of auto racing. Many professional drivers select Arai for their helmet choice. As a matter of fact, the vast majority of Formula 1 drivers wear an Arai helmet.

These helmets could not be sold before October 1 and Bell has geared up production so all styles and sizes of these 2005 helmets are now available and ready to ship.
Northstar’s president and owner, John Ruther said “ We are very excited to have been selected by Arai to represent their auto racing helmets in the Midwest. These are some of the highest quality helmets made and provide a nice compliment to our line of Bell helmets. These products fit perfectly with our philosophy of carrying only the highest quality products of any product type. We believe only the highest quality products should be used when racing, due to the inherent dangers of the sport. At Northstar, we are racers, and if we wouldn’t use the product we won’t sell it.” In addition to these new product lines Northstar is a distributor of  Alpinestars, Brey-Krause, Corbeau, Diadora, HANS, Oakley, OMP, Pagid, Recaro, RedLine, Sabelt, Schroth, Sparco, Stand 21, and many others.
