Buy James Hunt’s 1978 McLaren Helmet
One of James Hunt’s helmets is going up for auction on the 22nd and 23rd of February.
Offered as part of Silverstone Auction’s ‘Race Retro Sale’, the helmet is estimated to sell for between £18,000 and £25,000.
The helmet itself comes from Hunt’s 1978 F1 season with McLaren, and what with the Hunt-Lauda hype from Ron Howard’s film Rush it’s certainly an exciting bid.
Nick Whale, MD of Silverstone Auctions, said “it’s fantastic that we’ve secured another item so closely linked to one of F1’s greatest stars. Hunt was one of the true greats of the sport, bringing even more flair and excitement to a golden era for Formula One.”
