Channel Islands Weekend Round-up

The annual British Hillclimb Championship ‘summer holiday’, which took place on Jersey & Guernsey last week brought it’s usual levels of stressful journeys, changable weather and hot competition!

In terms of wins, Scott Moran lead the way over the weekend with 2 Run Off victories. However, most of those who made the journey to the Islands were delighted to see Wallace Menzies and Tom New take their 2nd ever wins at National level.

Wallace was a man on a mission over there, taking 34 points from a possible 40 to return to the mainland as top scorer from the trip and with a place in the Championship top 4 overall.

The locals entertained as always with Jerseyman Jason Mourant trimming a 10th off of Paul Haimes 2009 record on his local hill and Guernseyman Darren Warwick (with Haimes’ old car) finishing 4th at his home hill. But the run of the weekend for the Islanders must’ve been Andy ‘Bugs’ Bougard qualifying his 1600cc Force 2nd overall for the 2nd Run Off at Bouley Bay.
