Born in Stoke-on-Trent, he became managing director of the family printing business, based in Hanley, but then served as an officer in the British Army from 1943 to at least 1952.[1][2][3] He took part in the famous Le Mans 24 Hours race in 1951 and 1954. On the former occasion, his co-driver Peter Reece crashed their Allard J2[4] on lap 22, and although the pair were nevertheless able to complete a total of 230 laps they were disqualified because their final lap exceeded the prescribed thirty minute limit. In the 1954 race, the Kieft Sport[5][6] of Hitchings and his co-driver Georges Trouis completed 26 laps over seven hours before overheating forced its retirement. Between these outings, Hitchings and Trouis met with better fortune in the 1953 RAC Tourist Trophy at the Dundrod Circuit in Northern Ireland, where their DB HBR Panhard took first place in its class.
