Peter John Hollingworth AC, OBE (born 10 April 1935) is an Australian Anglican bishop. He served as the Archbishop of Brisbane for 11 years before becoming the 23rd Governor-General of Australia from 2001 until 2003.

Hollingworth's time as governor-general was marred by controversy over allegations that he had not done enough to investigate charges of sexual abuse within the Diocese of Brisbane when he was the archbishop. For much of his tenure he lacked bipartisan support, with key members of the opposition Labor Party calling on him to resign. In May 2003 a report by the Diocese of Brisbane into the handling of the cases was tabled in the Queensland parliament by the Labor Premier of Queensland, Peter Beattie. On 28 May 2003, despite maintaining the support of the Prime Minister, John Howard, Hollingworth resigned.

Footage from the Inaugural Tony Marsh Memorial meeting at Gurston Down Hillclimb on the 19th July 2009. Just after lunchtime spectators were given the opportunity to see four cars owned by the late Tony Marsh in action on the Hillclimb that he helped to design back in 1967. The cavalcade was headed up with Tony's first competition car, LWP 757, a Mk2 Dellow fitted with the Ford 100E side valve engine with Marshall J75 supercharger, which was built as a special lighweight version of the standard design for 1953. It was delivered originally to Tony Marsh on 28th July 1953 and became his trials car for a number of years before he disposed of it. Tony was re-united with the car in the 1980s and carried out a painstaking restoration back to its original specification in which it remains to this day. The car was driven by his nephew Richard Hollingworth both up the hill and back down receiving applauds from the marshals lined at the edge of the track. Next up was Tony's self built Marsh Special, a 4WD racing car fitted with a 4.2 V8 Buick engine that he used to claim his 6th Hillclimb Championship in 1967. The ingenious 4WD system working in a straight line but reverting back to RWD around the corners. This car was driven up the hill by his middle son Peter Marsh and back down by number three son Paul Marsh. This was followed closely by the replica Ford GT40 that Tony built using the engine from his fated Rovercraft, a March 782 F2 chassis with a monsterous 4.5lt V8 twin <b>...</b>
