WEB­STER’S WORLD TI­TLE BID HILLABY IN THE HOT SEAT

Motorcycle News (UK) - - This Week -

Peter Hillaby rose to the top of the roads rac­ing game by tak­ing the chair­manõs seat at the TT. He is still in­volved in rac­ing and runs Oliv­erõs Mount and the Auto 66 club. He won MCNÕS Life­time Achieve­ment Award in 2014. Steve Web­ster had not won a world ti­tle at the end of the 1986 sea­son and a switch to Krauser looked likely to help him do just that. In the end, Web­ster cam­paigned the Lcr-yamaha (Krauser) and took the 1987 crown. He would go on to take 10 world ti­tles dur­ing a dom­i­nant run of re­sults.
