On his way winning the 1976 worldchampionship Briton James Hunt used two cars of the McLaren Ford M23 model, the M23/6 and the M23/8. At the Nuerburgring Hunt won the last Grand Prix taking place at the 22.8 kilometres long Nordschleife in the McLaren Ford M23/6, while his rival Niki Lauda was fighting to survive his fire accident in the hospital of nearby Adenau. The photos by Klaus Ewald shown on these two pages were taken at the special exhibition Gruene Hoelle Nuerburgring at the 2005 Essen Motor Show.
