June 9th marks the birthday of one of our very favorite people, David Wishart Hobbs. Born in Royal Leamington Spa, “Hobbo” has distinguished himself in all manner of motorsports from driver to expert commentator. Sharing this birth date are Peter the Great and Johnny Depp, which should tell you something about the phase of the moon at that time.
