Hulme ‘Bear 1’ tries Hampton Downs

Hulme ‘Bear 1’ tries Hampton Downs

Tony Roberts has plenty of experience behind 500+hp cars – he races a McLaren F5000 car – and as one of the owners of the newly completed Hampton Downs circuit he can do as many laps as he likes. He recently got to try out the Hulme ‘Bear 1’ around the circuit and was very impressed.

The winners of the launch competition which was back in May (you might remember that we were there in the pouring rain while John Banks, Kenny Smith and others unveiled the car) also finally got to have their day in the sun…courtesy of the roofless Hulme ‘Bear 1’.

So, with goggles firmly secured Dave Dobbyn, Beryl and Colin Farr and Hung Nguyen experienced the orange beast from Manukau to Clevedon via Whitford – some nice sweeping roads in that journey!

Hulme is progressing with its proposed initial public offering, but explains that due to the current economic conditions, compliance is much more stringent.
