Full size - 1975 - original replica Bell Star F1 GP helmet- James Hunt
James Hunt was an iconic British Formula One racing driver who won the Formula One World Championship in 1976, he was known for his great but dangerous racing, his rivalry with Nikki Lauda and his playboy life style.
James hunt began his F1 racing career in 1973 with the Hesketh Racing team and soon became known for his reckless and action-packed exploits on track, this earned him the nickname "Hunt the Shunt". He went on to win for Hesketh, driving their own Hesketh 308 car, before joining the McLaren team at the end of 1975. In his first year with McLaren, Hunt won the 1976 World Drivers' Championship, and he remained with the team for a further two years, although with less success, before moving to the Wolf team in early 1979. Following a string of races in which he failed to finish, Hunt retired from driving halfway through the 1979 season.
Hunt died from a heart attack aged 45. He was inducted into the Motor Sport Hall of Fame on 29 January 2014.
This is avery nice recreation of the 1975 James Hunt helmet, it's it very good original condition, it's a 1975 Bell Star helmet with Snell code 1975 (this helmet could be used for professional motor racing).
This Iconic helmet is fantastic and it's 100% like the helmet that James wore in the 1975 season, real James Hunt helmets are priceless and this will be very close to a real one, this will absolutely make the perfect display piece in any collection. As you can see, the helmet is in good condition inside and out, although it’s 44 years old it stull looks very nice.
