Solid but unspectacular sports car stalwart of the 1950's who also appeared in a number of German Formula 2 races, entering his privately owned Veritas sports car. Peters' World Championship appearance came towards the end of his career which started in the early 1930's, racing a BMW 315/1 Special. Peters appears to have stopped racing in 1953. Although Peters predominately raced in sportscars, he did compete in the occasional hillclimb as well.
