There is no better example of an ‘Against all odds’ story than the 1974 Hesketh Racing Formula 1 team.
With the maverick James Hunt at the wheel of the fabled Hesketh 308 F1 car and the extravagant, 23 year old Lord Hesketh at the helm,‘The biggest little racing team in the world’, captured the public’s imagination.
We at RetroGP.com have been fortunate enough to feature in The Guardian Online, in the Sport/Christmas sports gift guide.
The article was written by Giles Richards and featured some of our T shirts designs and Prints.

Eddie Jordan made the call, inviting Mansell for a tour of the factory and talked him into a test drive.
Mansell was apparently very impressed with the Jordan factory and liked the sound of all this.
