news_turbo_dynamicsSeptember 13 marked the much anticipated return of the Marsh brothers to the renowned Gurston Hillclimb Course in Salisbury. Peter Marsh, who is the founder and MD of the Christchurch-based turbocharger specialists, Turbo Dynamics, and his brother Simon, are the sons of the late multi-discipline sportsman Tony Marsh.

Tony Marsh, who co-designed the Gurston Hillclimb Course in 1967, enjoyed a successful racing career, which spanned over five decades and included Formula 1 and Le Mans 24-Hours. His record six British Hillclimb Championship titles is an achievement that still remains intact today.

It was a long awaited return for the brothers who have both enjoyed previous success at the course. Simon secured a top 10 finish in Round 28 of the 2009 Championship and Peter, after taking a 12 year break from racing, secured a third place finish at the Gurston round that same year.

People at Gurston have coined the competiveness of the duo the ‘Marsh Mêlées’, because as soon as each took their turn behind the wheel all ‘team orders’ went out the window as both Simon and Peter both went ‘pedal to the metal’ with only one thing in mind – beating each other across the line!

Peter commented: “It was great to be back out at Gurston competing with my brother, Simon and sharing his racecar. Together with Steve Hurst of GWR Motorsport and DJ Racecars, he has done a fantastic job designing and building the car – the acceleration and power really is awesome and I had forgotten what an adrenaline fix driving the course is!”
