Freddie Hunt.... (Silverstone Classic Media Day 2016)

One of my favourite events to photograph is the Silverstone Classic, I missed it last year but hope to attend this year. Last week I popped along to the Media Day to find out a little more about this year's event.

One of the 'headlines' for this year is a tribute to James Hunt as it's 40 years since he won the Formula One World Championship in 1976. During the Media Day his son Freddie Hunt was on hand carrying out a variety of pre-arranged media duties including an interview with the legend that is Murray Walker and driving one of his father's title winning McLaren M23s.
