As it’s St Patricks day, we thought it would be great to feature some content on our Irish brethren!
Niall is a fantastic driver and soon to be our next supported driver! The guys in the Murray Motorsport shop are representing team AntmanEU out there in Ireland!
Niall answered a few questions for us which we will be publishing soon!
Secondly, we got a chance to sit down with Irish Helmet Painter Paul from Crazy Custom Paint! We asked him a few questions about his work and Irish life…
- What Helmet are you most proud of painting and why?
There’s not really a helmet I could single out. I always think my work can be improved upon or see some defect I have missed, like most artists I’m very self critical. What makes me most proud is the customers reaction when they pick up the finished piece.
- Outside of painting what are your passions/hobbies?
My main passion is for motorbikes and road cycling anything on two wheels really. My hobbies are mainly looking after our horses and trying to entertain my 3 year old daughter!
- If you weren’t a helmet painter what would you be doing?
If I wasn’t a helmet painter and could do any job I would love to be a professional cyclist. I raced at amateur level for a number of years and don’t get a lot of time these days to get out on the bike.
- What is your favourite helmet that someone else has painted?
That’s a tough question! I couldn’t name a specific helmet but Brett Kings work has always impressed me.
- If you could work on one drivers helmet past or present, who would you pick?
For me personally I don’t follow motorsport with 4 wheels. If I could work on any racers helmet it would be Carl Crutchlow’s.
- How will you be celebrating St Patricks Day?
For Paddys day I will be in the workshop unfortunately. We have a client coming and deadlines to meet by the end of this month so its 24/7 at the minute!
- Guinness or Murphy’s?
I have never tried Murphys’ and Guinness is rank! Its Corona for me.
- Westlife or Boyzone?
Definitely Westlife! after a day huffing PPG deltron I’m flying without wings !
Paul is a fantastic painter! Check out his painter page for more information on how you can get your Lid painted by Paul!
