Last night we Rush’ed!

Niki LaudaLast night we went to see ‘Rush’, the movie about Niki Lauda and James Hunt, their F1 GP battles and friendship, which opened last week. We were not disappointed! Here are a few photos that Wil de Groot took at the 1975 Watkins Glen F1 GP featured in the film. He had the good fortune to be standing a few feet away from Lauda as he accepted his World Championship winner’s trophy!

The photos feature Lauda, James Hunt, March team member Hans Stuck Jr.,  technicians with Mark Donohue’s car (team owner Roger Penske in the foreground) and Vittorio Brambilla helping bleed the brakes on his March F1 racer.

 

We’re still hunting for some misplaced photos of driver Emerson Fittipaldi and one of Lord Hesketh putting a sticker on James Hunt’s car!
