For most motorsport fans, Lord Alexander Hesketh, needs no introduction. He founded Hesketh Racing at only 22 years old, and within a year his team moved from F3 to the pinnacle of motor racing, Formula 1. ‘Le Patron’, as he was known in the team, brought not only champagne, lobsters and glamour to the grand prix tracks of Europe, but some of the most exciting racing of the era with James Hunt behind the wheel.

Private Collectors Club are delighted to present a fascinating interview with the legend that is Lord Hesketh.
