'Hobbo' – Motor Racer, Motor Mouth
There’s a possibility you may not have heard of David Hobbs, or at least know little about him. This new book, from the people who’ve proved very good at this type of glossy memoir, recalls the career of one of Briton’s most versatile pedallers. ‘Hobbo’, as he is universally and affectionately known, raced in Formula 1, F5000, Indycar, NASCAR, Can-Am, IMSA, Trans-Am, the British Touring Car Championship and the Goodwood Revival, winning races and titles in a disparate number of series over 40-plus years. He also entertained fans out of the cockpit for a similar number of years as an F1 pundit for NBC in his adopted America, bringing an authoritative and amusing slant to the network’s popular broadcast. Carefully and caringly edited by experience motorsport journalist, broadcaster and PR guru Andrew Marriott, this honest and amusing book is sure to be one of the best racing biogs for many years.
