Driver Profile - David Hobbs

Post by Londoner »

Morning everyone

The ranks of GP Rejects are populated with drivers who pottered about with meagre success in various series before getting their lucky break in Formula 1, and doing well enough to keep their Reject status. But there's also a subcategory of drivers who, while their F1 ventures were ultimately futile, were enormously successful elsewhere in the world of motorsport. Drivers like Bobby Rahal, Alex Zanardi and Sebastien Bourdais immediately come to mind, and our latest Driver Profile draws from this illustrious pool. A sportscar ace and legendary commentator over in the States, David Hobbs has just about done it all in motorsport...apart from score enough points to escape Reject status in Formula 1! Rob Dylan has worked his magic once again to tell a true feel-good story, which you can read right here!

He also raced in what is now the British Touring Car Championship in 1962 and 1968. Scored an outright win at Silverstone in the latter year. Did the research on http://touringcarracing.net/index_normal.html
