Lord Alexander Hesketh was barely 22 years old when he founded Hesketh Racing in 1972.

The young Lord was full of ambition and within a year climbed the ranks from Formula 3 into Formula 1. His principle driver was James Hunt, who was both hugely talented and an equally flamboyant character.

As his technical man, Lord Hesketh hired a promising, young engineer named Harvey Postlethwaite who was commissioned to develop a brand new racer for the 1974 Formula 1 series.

The 'Hesketh 308' retired on its first two outings but success came a week later when Hunt drove to victory in the non-championship International Trophy race at Silverstone.

In the season's Grands Prix, Hunt could not challenge seasoned teams like Tyrrell, Lotus, Ferrari and McLaren for pace.

Thanks to his steady driving and the ever improving Hesketh, he found himself on the podium three times towards the end of the season.
James Hunt

Hunt continued his good form in 1975 by clinching second in the first race of the new season. Hesketh was clearly closer to the top teams than a year before.

At the Dutch Grand Prix, Hunt and Hesketh made the most from the changing weather conditions. On a drying track, Hunt was the first to pit for slick tyres. It was enough to emerge in the lead after all top runners had swapped tyres.

Hunt fought off the soon to be crowned World Champion Niki Lauda and scored the team's first Grand Prix victory. He followed that maiden win with another second place finish and eventually ended the season fourth in the driver's standing.
