From the author of 'The Life of Senna' and 'Shunt' 
In the Name of Glory 1976: The Greatest Ever Sporting Duel
by Tom Rubython
As the sun set on the 1975 season, James Hunt had no ride and no prospects for the following year. In contrast, Niki Lauda, the new World Champion, was in an entirely different position, with a full year's contract ahead of him and Enzo Ferrari begging him to sign a new, more lucrative one for years into the future. Then Emerson Fittipaldi left McLaren to form the new all-Brazil Copersucar team with his brother Wilson, opening up a coveted top-tier seat for the hard-driving, hard-living Hunt. Hunt and Lauda battled all season long until a late season crash at the Nurburgring set up one of the most couragous and dramatic finishes in racing history. Soon to be the subject of a new Ron Howard film, the 1976 Grand Prix season was one for the books.
