A weekend in Monaco with James Hunt

“Who knows anything about this chap James Hunt?” Asked the news editor at the morning conference, “ and who’s this Lord Hesketh who has his own racing team?”.

It’s early morning, Monday 20th May 1974 at ITN in London. Must be a slow news day if the newsdesk wants a motor racing story. But then, Hunt and Hesketh were somewhat different from your traditional Grand Prix team.
