Familiar Faces Return to Gurston – Part 1

This weekend’s clubby at Gurston Down in Wiltshire will see the return of two well known local drivers.

1990s Leaders Championship front-runner Peter ‘Hobbit’ Hannam is making a return to the hills after circuit racing Formula 3 cars in recent years.

Hobbit ran in the 1600cc class for many years in his native Westcountry as well as further afield, initially in a Ray and then with a BDA-engined Pilbeam MP45 (the car which Frank Byrnes now runs in Northern Ireland).

His return to Gurston this weekend will be at the wheel of a Lotus Elise, as a part of the ACSMC Hillclimb Class.

Have fun on your return, we hope to see the paddock covered with ‘Team Hobbit Racing’ stickers like it was in the good old days!
