Party in the Park!

The final event of the 2014 British Hillclimb Championship season took place at Loton Park in Shropshire at the weekend and provided everything that is good about our wonderful sport.

A healthy crowd enjoyed a great day at Loton Park.

 

A popular double winner, a fond farewell, a recently crowned champion, some hot competition, cracking commentary, relatively little damage and a very large & enthusiastic crowd combined to provide a real festival atmosphere both in the paddock and in the spectator areas.

Double Dry Doune!?

The penultimate round of the British Hillclimb Championship season took place at Doune in Scotland at the weekend and, after the record-breaking bonanza at the hill in June, miraculously this latest event was warm and sunny yet again!

Different colour, same result for Team Moran.

 

As well as seeing a number of class records set over the weekend, we also crowned our 2014 British Champion. Having dominated with his usual brand of metronomic consistency and blistering pace, Ludlow driver Scott Moran claimed his fifth title, joining Martyn Griffiths and David Grace as a five times winner and just one win away from the record set by the late, great Tony Marsh.

Event Round-up…. Shelsley Walsh

Who would have predicted two years ago that a 2-litre class car would win a National Run Off, in the dry, at Shelsley Walsh?

The venue was in superb condition for the biggest event of the year.

 

Not very many people, if any. But at Shelsley in August Warwickshire Motorsport Engineer Jos Goodyear did exactly that with the 1400cc motorcycle engined GWR Raptor 2. And what’s more, he did it with a time just a couple of tenths or so away from Martin Grove’s long-held Outright Hill Record at The World Famous venue.
