Freddie Hunt to compete in Dutch Super Challenge

Freddie Hunt to resume racing, looks to fulfil Le Mans ambitions
Freddie Hunt, son of 1976 F1 World champion James Hunt, is to return to top flight racing and will compete in the Dutch Super Challenge this year.

The 26-year-old, who took a year out of the sport in 2013, has secured a seat with Northstar Motorsport alongside two-time Le Mans 24 Hours LMP2 winner and CEO of the AD Group Mike Newton.

“A key factor for me taking this drive was to be in the position to draw upon Mike's extensive experience, both in the technology for endurance cars, and as an accomplished two times Le Mans LMP2 race winner,” said Freddie, who started his career in Formula Ford, before then competing in the ADAC Formula Masters series in 2008 and 2009 and the ADAC Cruze Cup in 2011 and 2012.

“It is clear that Freddie has a natural talent,” added Newton, “and we are very excited to be working with him to develop this skill to fulfil his Le Mans ambitions.”
