My older Brother a dedicated motor cycle engineer. his world was motor cycles and im proud to say i was sucsuessful in giving him his success in what he devoted his life to. Brother Rob hinton called him the "brain surgeon" he looked after both my 250cc and 350cc GP bikes with attention to detail and provided me with the fastest and reliable privately owned bikes in Austrailia in keeping me competive against the best riders in the country.


Phillip was often in touch with Prof Gordon Blair of the Bellfast University, in his research into two stroke expansion chambers, constantly striving to improve the performance of my bikes, he operated his own motor cycle business in Goulburn NSW untill his sudden death in 2007.
