Hollier in Pilbeam/motorcycle-engined switch

South West hillclimb star, and 2007 Leaders Champion, Ed Hollier will make a return to the hills in 2011. Former Terrapin and OMS driver Ed has acquired a Pilbeam MP62 chassis which he, along with father Bob, is re-engineering to replace the 2.8 Hart engine it was built for with a tuned Hayabusa engine. Although an earlier MP50 has been run with a bike-engine down in Cornwall previously, this will be the first time that a Pilbeam with a motorcycle installation has been seen at National Championship level.

Ed will certainly fly in this car and speedhillclimb.com will be there to report on his progress.
