Scott Hits the Century!

In securing victory in the second British Hillclimb Championship Top 12 Run Off at Gurston Down on Sunday, Three-time former Champion Scott Moran achieved a major career milestone.

The Ludlow driver’s second Run Off win of the day was also his 100th championship round win, a feat achieved by only one other driver in the 65 year history of the MSA Championship.

Scott’s first win came at Harewood Hillclimb back in 2002, in a week which saw three very young drivers, who would go on to even bigger and better things in the sport, secure their own first ever Run Off wins. In an eight-day period in May 2002 Scott, along with future double-champ Adam Fleetwood and 2012 star of the year Jos Goodyear all took their debut wins. Scott (Pilbeam MP88) and Adam (Gould GR55) scored their wins at Harewood whilst Jos (Pilbeam MP87) had to wait a week until Gurston.

After claiming his 100th win at Gurston, Scott is now within striking distance of the all-time record of four-time Champ Martin Groves, who has scored 104 Run Off victories. At his current strike rate, Scott could take top spot by Doune or Harewood in just a few weeks time.

Third on the all-time winners list is held by hillclimb legend and four-time title winner, the late great Roy Lane.

Congratulations on this brilliant achievement Scott.
