Press Release of the James Hunt Collection 2019
To all of our friends in the media and the Formula 1 world,
We are very excited to announce the launch of the official James Hunt website and online shop, where all the fans can go to remember some of this legend's best moments, know more about him and also purchase official merchandise.
James Simon Wallis Hunt was born on August 29th in the year 1947 in Belmont, England and died on June 15th, 1993 in Wimbledon, England. He was a Formula 1 Champion and rockstar, known for having an extravagant lifestyle until he suffered a heart attack when he was aged 45.
It's been almost 26 years since he left us, and we remember him fondly, but it's also been 46 years since his debut in Monaco on June 3rd, 1973 with Hesketh Racing team. That's not all, because June is definitely Hunt's month. He also won his first Grand Prix on this month (22nd), and he also retired on the 8th.
As you can see, we have a lot to commemorate about Hunt 'the Shunt', the Champion, the superstar and the loving father. Wherever he is, he changed the world, he won a piece of our hearts and we will always remember him.
Therefore, we would kindly like to invite you to check out this new place to honour his memory, his achievements and the mark he left in all of us and the history of this amazing sport; it will be our honour to entertain you all and serve you in his behalf.
The official James Hunt website team.
