James Hunt. Lotus Type-59.

"James Hunt won several races in his Molyslip Lotus 59, including coming 2nd in heat 1 and winning heat 2 at Brands Hatch 17th July 1970." - After 46 years, his car is now back at this legendary circuit racing again! We had many beautiful cars at this year's Lotus Festival and James' Hunt car was one of them.

From early Sunday morning, we had the whole track for ourselves, but we couldn't drive it (noise limits did not allow us to drive the car before a certain time). But with the help of a few stewards, be managed to push this little car wherever we wanted and take some great pictures.

Arnold, the owner of the car, had a picture taken 46 years ago at this track with James Hunt behind the wheel, just before the race start. We tried to reproduce the same image and situation again. Since I found out about the old photo only at the moment of shooting, we did not have a lot of time to prepare, but it was fun trying to roughly stage it to look the same as the old one. Of course, we did not have all the people around and other cars on the track.
