James Hunt

£ 29.00

James Hunt t shirt (29 August 1947 - 15 June 1993) won the Formula One World Championship in 1976. Hunt`s career progression saw him starting out in touring car racing, moving on to Formula Three before entering Formula One in 1973. He went on to win in both World Championship and non-Championship races when driving for the Hesketh Racing team in a Hesketh 308 car. By the end of 1975 he had joined the McLaren team. In his first year with McLaren, Hunt won the World Drivers Championship, and he remained with the team for a further two years, before moving to the Wolf team in 1979. Having failed to finish in a series of successive races Hunt retired from driving half way through the 1979 season. Hunt was spontaneous and unconstrained in most of the things he did notably as a TV pundit alongside Murray Walker He was also notably good at doing press ups. It is cliche that sex is not good for athletic performance. This is now known to be, let's say bollocks. Hunt's take on the matter was expressed with a badge on his racing overalls: Sex - Breakfast of Champions. Here reproduced on our James Hunt t shirt.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
