Andy Priaulx

He came, he saw, he conquered. Andy was always going to be a star far beyond the world of hillclimbing.

From a background of motocross and powerboat racing, he exploded onto the British Hillclimb scene with Mallock sport-racers and then Pilbeam single-seaters.

After his first championship round win at Wiscombe in 1994, his family acquired a Pilbeam-DFL MP58 and he dominated the 1995 championship, scoring a maximum 10 run-off victories.

Currently racing in the ILMC for BMW, but no hillclimb fan will forget the sight of him making the MP58 dance in 1995.
