Blast from the Past 2

Teaboy dropped us an email over the weekend and brought to our attention a stunning video of Shelsley Walsh filmed at a British Hillclimb Championship round in 1990. The film, which is voiced by Radio Le Mans legend Neville Hay, shows some class runs a couple of interviews and then full coverage of the Top 12 Run Off.

Amongst the drivers shown in this film are ‘Great Drivers’ Roy Lane, David Grace, Martyn Griffiths and Ray Rowan as well as currentĀ competitors Tony Wiltshire, Deryk Young, Richard Brown and Rob Turnbull.
