This popular racer has put down all his experiences in this highly readable memoir welcomed by racing enthusiasts on both sides of the Atlantic. It includes a foreword by his friend and rival, Sam Posey, and is co-authored by Andrew Marriott.
He writes about his early days in England driving his mum’s Morris Oxford in 1959 to racing Jaguars, a Lotus Elite and later trading paint with the likes of Phil Hill, Mark Donohue, Brian Redman, Mario Andretti and Dan Gurney. Hobbs describes his achievements and disappointments with honesty and humor racing against these legends in endurance sports racers, touring cars, Formula 1, Formula 5000, IndyCars, IMSA, Trans-Am, Can-Am and even NASCAR.
On top of that, he has been a television commentator in America for more than 40 years, bringing wit and wisdom to the screen while covering primarily Formula 1 for ESPN, SpeedChannel and NBC Sports.
Fans and friends will have the chance to meet the author, purchase his new book and have it signed personally by “Hobbo.”
