John Hobbs Donation

We are very grateful to receive a last minute, but significant, donation for this weekend’s BDRHoF Dragstalgia Grand Auction from Drag Bike ace John Hobbs. This takes the form of a Phil Read International helmet, plus gloves, he used between 1979-1981. Also included is a signed B&W framed print showing John wearing these items, taken by Keith Simmonds.

This is particularly meaningful as Dragstagia will be John’s last ride after over fifty years of competing in Drag Racing, Sprinting & World Record events. Also coinciding with the release of Keith Lee’s new book John Hobbs and the Age of the Twins.

The Hall of Fame is indebted to all who have so kindly donated items, a full list of photos & descriptions of each lot can be found on this link
