Castle Hillclimb

A month later than planned, the Camel Vale Motor Club completed it’s first hillclimb event of the season last weekend, with two days of competition at Castle Hillclimb.

The events attracted a healthy field of cars and bikes on both days at the Cornish Hill.

Launceston local Terry Graves made up for the disappointment of not competing at either Wiscombe (British Hillclimb) or Kames (British Sprint) the week before and blasted to the win on both days. The big Gould-DFR is always an impressive sight at Castle and it was comfortably fastest.

Andy Dinner is getting quicker and quicker with his Pilbeam these days and he was Grave’s closest challenger on Saturday and Sunday. Dinner had closed to within 0.53s by the end of the weekend.

Dave Sims battled with Dinner throughout but couldn’t quite get his Ralt on terms.

Saturday’s fastest biker was Sam Matthewson on his 1080cc Suzuki, but Martin Robbins was fastest of the weekend with his win on Sunday on his 637cc KTM.
