On the 27th of February 2009 Simon Hinshelwood died of a brain tumour, he was just 40 years old!
He left behind a lot of sad friends, family and a beloved wife. Thankfully, he also left behind plenty to remember him by.
Ten of the Best is just one of Simon’s barn-storming achievements. He wanted to share his love of modified performance cars with the world.
So, in 2001, along with his mate Chris Mann, he decided to create a big event for fellow enthusiasts.
Very few people could have put something like TOTB together, Simon had all the qualifications; the most important one being his passion for fast cars. especially his Evo 6.
The picture above sums up Simon’s feelings about it perfectly! If you’re a regular at TOTB, then we know you’ll be one of the few who’ll understand.
We also know that he’d be chuffed to bits about the fact that his big idea is still keeping thousands of people entertained and enthralled today.
Thank you, Simon. We’re all going to miss you
