Hunt re­mem­bered at Brands Hatch

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

James Hunt’s rac­ing ca­reer will be cel­e­brated at Brands Hatch over the Bank Hol­i­day week­end on May 28/29 with a pa­rade of rac­ing cars from across his ca­reer.

It was at Brands Hatch 40 years ago that Hunt won and was then ex­cluded from a Bri­tish Grand Prix vic­tory fol­low­ing a first cor­ner in­ci­dent.

Later that sea­son he won the World Cham­pi­onship at a rain-soaked Fuji and his tro­phy from that race will be on dis­play.

A demon­stra­tion at lunchtime on Sun­day will fea­ture his ti­tle-win­ning Mclaren M23 and a range of other cars from his time in F3, F2 and sportscars. His son Fred­die will be guest of hon­our.
