Hunt to be remembered at Silverstone
The 40th anniversary of James Hunt’s world championshipwinning season will be celebrated at the Silverstone Classic on July 29-31.
Hunt’s life will be recalled with a display of cars and memorabilia from his title-winning 1976 campaign curated by his sons Tom and Freddie.
The Mclaren M23 which Hunt used to win both the French and German grands prix in 1976 will be on show in garage 16 in the International Paddock, together with a collection of significant cars from his F1 career. Also on show will be the Surtees TS9B in which he made his F1 debut in 1973 and the Mclaren M26 in which he won the 1977 British Grand Prix at Silverstone.
