Hunt Vs Lauda: Grand Prix's Greatest Racing Rivals
Monday 23rd December 2013
The victory duel for the 1976 Formula 1 World Championship has become the stuff of legend. The spectacular battle for supremacy that raged between Austrian Niki Lauda and 'True Brit' James Hunt has never been equalled and now this amazing story is told in a fascinating new documentary Hunt Vs Lauda: Grand Prix's Greatest Racing Rivals.
After almost burning to death in his car at the Nurburgring track, Lauda came back from the dead and fought Hunt all the way to the last race of the season... But this film is no simple tale of driver-versus-driver: both men had their demons, but the forces that threatened them most were bred from the insane circus that surrounded them.
This powerful documentary originally aired on BBC4 and now comes to DVD on 27th January 2014 courtesy of Delta Leisure.
Told through unseen footage and exclusive interviews with the team managers, families, journalists and friends who were in the front row it captures the heart of the 1970s and the season that changed Formula 1 forever.
