Chassis: 308/2
Halfway through the 1974 season, the first Hesketh 308 was replaced by chassis 308/2. It was subsequently used by James Hunt for well over a season. In the first year Hunt managed to score two podium finishes. Further improved to '308B' spec for 1975, chassis 308/2 was even more competitive with Hunt scoring a victory at Zandvoort and two second place finishes. The chassis was used for a further season by Guy Edwards and Harald Ertl but with little success.

Lord Hesketh retained the Zandvoort winning machine until 2007 when it was acquired by a historic racer of considerably talent. That year and again in 2008, James' son Freddie Hunt was reunited with his father's old car. He drove the car at the 2007 Goodwood Revival and the 2008 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The current owner took the car out of the 2008 Monaco Historic Grand Prix, where he was among the top runners.
