A gentleman Swiss driver who occasionally took part in major races.

Hirt was a gentleman Swiss driver who occasionally took part in major races and never remotely troubled the leaders.

He purchased one of Loof's Veritas-Meteors with fellow countryman Paul Glauser, and ran it during the 1950 and 1951 seasons, but it proved very unreliable in his hands, regularly posting early retirements.

He was glad to join forces with Rudi Fischer in 1952 when the Swiss pair ran Formula 2 Ferraris under the Ecurie Espadon (Swordfish) banner. Peter ran the old T212 car with no great success, and after having a bash in the team's T500 at Bremgarten late in 1953 he was seen no more on the circuits at major level.
