Murray Walker's tribute to James Hunt Part 1/2
James Simon Wallis Hunt (29 August 1947 -- 15 June 1993) was a British racing driver from England who won the Formula One World Championship in 1976. After retiring from driving, Hunt became a media commentator and businessman.
Murray Walker made this touching tribute film within a couple of weeks of James's death. It was broadcast following the French Grand Prix, on July 4th, 1993.
I was very much a fan of the pairing of James and Murray. It was definitely never the same again after James sudden departure.

Racing Bonneville On a $300 Craigslist Motorcycle - RideApart
"You don't have to spend a million bucks to fulfill your dreams. I bought a bike for $300, got it running and entered it in a race I'd always dreampt about.
Bonneville is an epic thing that brings out all kinds of speed contraptions and it was an honor to ride an old 1986 Honda VFR750 in the Run-Whatcha-Brung class and pretend to be like my childhood heroes.
If I can do it, anyone can." — Jamie Robinson
