March 30 2005.
UK favourite, Chris Walker, has returned to the brand where his career began and signed a sponsorship contract to wear Arai helmets.
Chris, who is campaigning this year's World Superbike series on a Kawasaki ZX10-R with the PSG1 Corse team, originally wore Arai when he started racing in 1994, using the brand throughout his career until the end of 2000.  He has been itching to return to Arai and will be back wearing his old 'Stalker' design - well known to his UK fans from his British Superbike racing days.
With the announcement of this signing, Arai will begin to work on an updated version of his original replica to be released worldwide at the beginning of 2006.
Commenting, Chris said, "It's great to be back in Arai, especially using the design that people associate me with.  Arai helmets fit superbly and I can't wait to get mine on for this weekends round at Phillip Island".
