Finale on the Farm

This Sunday sees the final round of the hugely popular Gurston Down Hillclimb Championship at the Wiltshire venue.


Gurston's Unique Downhill Start


Although the Top 10 Challenge has already been decided in favour of Andrew Forsyth and his Pilbeam, who has already claimed maximum points (best 3 of 4 rounds counts), the class based championship is still up for grabs with 4 contenders still in with a real shout.

16v Mini driver (KAD powered) Neal Masters leads the way at the moment after his record breaking performances in June & July. Masters’ classmate Jim White has also been sub-record twice this year but he really needs Masters to slip up if he is going to steal the crown.

Gurston regular (aren’t they all!?) Chris Cannell hasn’t quite got his beautiful St Bruno Roughcutter down to the Historically Interesting Class record yet this year, but he has been close each time out and his consistancy could well get him onto the overall podium.

For the next contender, we have to look down to 15th place on the Championship table… Gurston Competition Secretary Paul Webster is lurking. He missed the June round to go up to Doune Hillclimb in Scotland, but on the 2 occasions that he has graced Gurston with his presence he has DEMOLISHED the 2-litre Road Prod class record.

Webster plans to sabotage the Masters Mini!

If the weather is dry, then a Masters/Webster battle should decide the outcome but if the rain sets in then the smart money will be on Neal Masters and the mighty fast Mini.

Good luck guys, and may the best man win!
