A milestone win for Hunt and Hesketh

Lord Hesketh's eponymous F1 team scored its only victory on this day in 1975, winning the Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort.

And the flamboyant team did it of course with James Hunt, who also collected his first world championship win after holding off Niki Lauda's Ferrari for the better part of the 75-lap race.
