Hunt celebration for Goodwood
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.
