Valentino ROSSI TURTLE aka TARTARUGA Design History

Valentino Rossi is one of the most successful motorcycle racers of all time with nine Grand Prix World Championships – seven of which are in the premier class.

In 2013 Valentino Rossi had a ‘turtle aka ‘tartaruga’ helmet design specially created by famous Aldo Drudi for the Mugello race in Italy.

On top of the AGV K3 SV helmet depict a cartoon turtle with its eyes gazing forwards above the visor.

Valentino Rossi has a long history using ‘turtle’ as a mascot way back before he started using the number 46 or the ‘Sun and Moon’ images that are his signature Valentino’s helmet designs.

The "TURTLE" helmet also contained another hidden meaning. Since his return to Yamaha in 2013, Valentino had struggled to keep pace with the top three riders namely Dani Pedrosa, Jorge Lorenzo and Marc Marquez.

The turtle was a symbolic self-deprecating acknowledgement that he was at that time too slow in racing and playing catch up to the top three MotoGP riders.

As you can see on the left and right side of the full face, there are a group of stick figures running around the base. The yellow stick figure representing Valentino Rossi is struggling to keep up with a blue stick figure signifying Dani Pedrosa, a red stick figure symbolizing Jorge Lorenzo and lastly an orange stick figure representing Marc Marquez.
