Home Kidston
UNITED KINGDOM

Born
11 / 3 / 1910
Commander Home Kidston, was just as much of an enthusiast as his Le Mans-winning older brother, Bentley Boy Glen Kidston, owning and occasionally racing a succession of magnificent cars including a Bugatti 57C, Type 37 and Type 51, 8C Le Mans Alfa Romeo, ex-Works 3 Litre Bentley and Gullwing Mercedes. He also did a bit of racing in New Zealand in the '30s. One of his last motoring acquisitions, a 1973 Porsche Carrera RS, is now in his son's possession which he describes as "the last thing I would ever sell".
