Hunt cel­e­bra­tion for Good­wood

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

The rac­ing ca­reer of James Hunt will be a ma­jor theme at this year’s Good­wood Fes­ti­val of Speed (June 23-26).

To mark 40 years since Hunt beat Niki Lauda by a sin­gle point to win the 1976 World Cham­pi­onship ti­tle, ex­am­ples of sig­nif­i­cant cars from Hunt’s ca­reer will be at Good­wood.

From his F1 days, the cars he raced for Sur­tees, Hes­keth, Mclaren and Wolf will be on hand, while other race cars will trace his early ca­reer along with his Austin A35 road car.

His sons Tom and Fred­die, along with fam­ily, friends, fel­low driv­ers, team mem­bers and me­chan­ics, will be at Good­wood to join the cel­e­bra­tion.

Gareth Bur­nett and Mar­tyn Tay­lor won the Fly­ing Scots­man when the three-day trial for Pre-war cars ended in Scot­land last Sun­day. Some­time his­toric racer Bur­nett also won the 2013 event in his 1931 Tal­bot 105.
