The speaker at the Bourne Motor Racing Club evening on 13th April will be TV personality ‘Fuzz’ Townshend
Real Name John Richard Keith Townshend, he got his nickname ‘Fuzz’ from his friends at his junior school due to his Afro hairstyle.
After his mother bought him a drum kit, ‘Fuzz’ took lessons and made his stage debut with a local band aged 12 years. He served an apprenticeship with West Midlands Transport working on buses at the Dudley depot. During that time he continued his music career, eventually releasing 2 albums in 2001/2002. He also became a part time music lecturer at a local college.
‘Fuzz’ took a job working for Practical Classics magazine and went on to become Technical Editor in 2011, when he decided to go freelance and set up his own car restoration business Westgate Classics. He later started his own Company SOS Workshops and from there he went on to become the TV star in the Channel 4 series Car SOS. In 2018 the show won a National Reality TV award for the most inspirational show.
