John Hart

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

John Hart, who died re­cently aged 85 af­ter a short ill­ness, was a suc­cess­ful hill­climber be­fore turn­ing his at­ten­tion to sup­port­ing the com­pe­ti­tion ac­tiv­i­ties of his sons Greg and Doug.

John started sprint­ing and hill­climb­ing his JHS spe­cial in the late 1950s and early 1960s and then took a break be­fore re­turn­ing with the same car in the mid-1970s. He moved up to his first sin­gle-seater and en­joyed lots of suc­cess with a se­ries of Brab­hams.

As Greg and Doug started com­pet­ing John scaled back his pro­gramme and sup­ported his sons, no­tably in his­toric sports-rac­ing cars like the Lola T210 and March 75S. MN sends con­do­lences to his fam­ily and friends across the sport.
