Official Hesketh Racing Zandvoort 1975 T-Shirt
ABOUT THIS SHIRT
WHEN THE PLAYBOYS BEAT THE BIG BOYS
We celebrate the day when 'The Underdog Squad', took on the might of Formula 1 and duffed them up.
Few arrived in Zandvoort expecting to see anything other than a Ferrari victory, especially with star driver Niki Lauda in almost unbeatable form. Having won at the seaside venue a year earlier, Lauda entered the race on the back of three successive victories, and he dominated practice.
But taking third on the grid, just 0.41s back from Lauda and team mate Clay Regazzoni, was Hunt in the Hesketh 308. A terrific effort. Not even the man himself thought he stood much chance of challenging the powerful Prancing Horses for victory in the race.
