1976 British Grand Prix - Download
Rarely has there been a Formula 1 Grand Prix where audience participation played such a role in the outcome of the race - at least on paper - than the 1976 British Grand Prix at Brands Hatch.
This remarkable programme charts the twists and turns of a race that was controversial at the time, and has remained so ever since.
The ‘76 season saw the titanic battle between McLaren’s James Hunt and Ferrari’s Niki Lauda.
Racing in front of the home crowd, James Hunt hoped to be the first English driver to win on home soil in 18 years - within seconds of the start of the race it looked very much as if that ambition wouldn’t come to pass.
What followed was an incredible moment of F1 history, now often overlooked because of the crash which nearly claimed Lauda’s life two weeks later at the Nurburgring.
This short film is a perfect slice of grand prix history. Get ready for incredible race footage of Ferrari 312s, six-wheeled Elf Team Tyrell P34s, Lotus 77s, McLaren M23s and more.
