Denny Hulme

Denis Clive Hulme OBE, known as Denny Hulme, was a New Zealand racing driver who won the 1967 Formula One World Drivers’ Championship for the Brabham team.

Born : 18 June, 1936
Titles : 1
Grand Prix : 112
Wins : 8
Teams : Brabham 1964 – 1967 and McLaren 1968 – 1974

In his younger days, Hulme’s penchant for driving without footwear led to the press in his native New Zealand labelling him ‘The Barefoot Boy from Te Puke’. But the sturdy racer, who remains perhaps the most unheralded world champion in F1 history, was later nicknamed ‘The Bear’ in reference to both his rugged features and his often irascible disposition.

Niki Lauda, 3 Times World Driver’s Title holder

Andreas Nikolaus “Niki” Lauda was an Austrian Formula One driver and a three-time F1 World Drivers title holder.

Niki suffered serious burns in a racing accident in 1976 at the Nürburgring and famously returned to racing after six weeks with his burns still heavily bandaged.

Following his racing career, Niki established the very successful Lauda Air, an airline that flew for 30 plus years before being sold and merged into Austrian air.

Niki held a leadership role as non-executive chairman of the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team and headed up the negotiations to sign Lewis Hamilton to a three-year deal with Mercedes in 2013. He died in 2019 following complications from a lung transplant. 

Niki has written a number of books and his story is told in a number of movies.
