James Hunt: Official Anniversary Souvenir
Offer Price £5.00
British Formula One star James Hunt had a ferocious competitive spirit, courage, a sense of humour and the will of a champion. His 1976 Formula One Championship victory is the most dramatic of all time. Yet the bravery and drama of that season, when a last-gasp third position in the pouring rain of Japan won him the title, was entirely in keeping with the man himself.
James Hunt did nothing quietly, nothing at anything less than full speed.
He was adored by men and women alike; the Boys Own outlook on life combined with his long blonde hair and good looks made him irresistible to all who met him or watched him on television.
In this safer and more sanitised age of motor racing, it is incredible to remember the risks Hunt and his fellow drivers took in the heady years of the 1970s but Formula One back then had a permanent smile on its face, a girl on its arm and a glass of champagne in its hand.
Hunt took all that to new levels though as he partied his was around the globe and cemented himself as a true British sporting legend Ė and playboy.
Now, on the 40th anniversary since his stunning World Championship success, relive Huntís story; a story of a man driven by a wild determination to be the best but to also enjoy himself at the same time.
This 148-page bookazine will take an exclusive look back at Huntís life, his wins and losses, the booze and the bust-ups, his famous rivalry with Niki Lauda and how he reached the very summit in this most fantastic season of them all.
With never-before-seen personal images from Huntís own collection, exclusive access to Huntís own memorabilia (including his 1976 helmet and F1 trophy) and intimate interviews with sons Freddie and Tom as well as Murray Walker and Stirling Moss, this incredible retrospective captures the unforgettable life story of an unforgettable man.
