About Peter Robinson
Peter Robinson is a life-long motor sport enthusiast who, from his early ‘teens, was a regular visitor to the Goodwood motor racing circuit and then Silverstone and Brands Hatch. Involvement in the local Bognor and the Chichester Motor Clubs led to an increasing interest in the sport of rallying, firstly as a navigator and then as a driver. He took part as a navigator in his first Motorsport News event in 1970 alongside John Barnes, another local enthusiast who had been very successful in many hill-climbs and rallies over the years. Peter changed to the driving seat a few years later with an Escort GT and then, many years later in historic stage rallies with a Renault Alpine and finally a Lotus Cortina. He had some good levels of success in both the UK and Belgium with these cars which, being 1965 and 1966 examples were highly representative of the cars outlined within these pages. When not competing he was an active photographer and some of his pictures can be seen in Memory Lanes and also on his web site.
