Westbury's career fell neatly into two halves, the first as a top-notch hill-climber, the second as a true circuit racer. He took to the hills in 1962 with a Cooper-Daimler, and when the V8 was dropped into his own Felday chassis in 1965 his first British hill-climb championship was duly attained. For the following year Westbury got his hands on the Ferguson 4WD, which proved almost unbeatable.

Although he continued to compete in 1965, Peter was busy building up his Felday Engineering firm, but he made a successful transition to Formula 3 in 1967 with a Brabham BT21. He won races at Silverstone, Chimay and Clermont Ferrand, and took further victories at Chimay again and Reims in 1968.

That year saw a couple of Formula 2 drives, before a full season in 1969 with his own Brabham BT50 which yielded second place in the Lottery GP at Monza and fifth in the F2 class of the German GP.

Peter was given a chance to try a pukka F1 machine when he joined BRM for the 1970 US GP, but the car suffered a blown engine and the disappointed driver failed to qualify. He was a consistent top-six finisher in Formula 2 during 1970-71 but results sagged the following year, and early in 1973 Westbury announced his retirement.
