Press Release of the James Hunt Collection 2019
To all fans, friends, media and the world of Formula 1.
We are pleased to present the official James Hunt website and online shop where we pay homage to the memory of a great legend of Formula 1.
Here we will collect reports, interviews, flashbacks and news to continue honouring his legacy while providing an online platform to purchase officially licensed merchandise to celebrate a life well-lived.
James Simon Wallis Hunt was born on 29 August 1947 in Belmont, England, and passed away on 15 June 1993 at his home in Wimbledon, at 45.
His unexpected passing, at a time when he was a familiar voice alongside legendary commentator Murray Walker, shocked the world of motorsport and beyond. He was robbed from us far too early, but he made an indelible mark on his journey.
James' real contribution to the rich history the sport was how he catapulted F1 into the popular imagination of the masses, attracting a whole new fanbase. His gritty 1976 World Championship duel with nemesis, rival and good friend - Niki Lauda - has been immortalised in the award-winning Rush movie. His collection focuses on milestones, highlights and successes of his racing career.
