James Hunt Memorabilia.

I was fortunate in March this year to purchase three items of James Hunt memorabilia from a private collection in Surrey.

James Simon Wallis Hunt (1947-1993) was a flamboyant British motor racing driver who won the world drivers’ championship in 1976 whilst driving for McLaren in the Japanese Grand Prix.

On retirement from motor racing Hunt became a television commentator with the BBC alongside Murray Walker, his dry sense of humour was always a pleasure to listen to on a Sunday afternoon throughout the F1 season.

Motor racing collectables are always in demand especially when associated with a driver of Hunt’s calibre.

Item 1:

Which I particularly liked, a stunning hand signed presentation of Hunt driving a Hesketh Ford in 1974 in the Swedish Grand Prix where he gained his first podium place for Hesketh  Racing

Item 2:

A hand signed framed photograph of James driving a McLaren M23 at Jarama where he won the 1976 Spanish Grand Prix

Item 3:

A hand signed photo of Hunt driving the winning McLaren in Canada in 1976.

These are three excellent items of motor racing memorabilia which I am pleased to own especially as I have been a fan of James Hunt for many years
