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.
