British Hillclimb Championship Awards

Worcestershire’s Chateau Impney hosted the British Hillclimb Championship Awards last night.

This traditionally popular event saw even more demand for tickets this year due to Tony Fletcher’s retirement as Championship Co-ordinator. As priority for tickets was given to competitors, we were unfortunately unable to attend the event. However, ‘Our Correspondent’ has informed us that the Special Award Winners for the 2011 season are as follows:


Norrie Galbraith Award for the Best Organised BHC round – Gurston Down (BARC SW Region)

Speed Championships Trophy for Merit and Endeavour – Nicola Menzies

Moran Motorhomes Marshals Shield – Sue Howlett

Nicholson McLaren Engines Trophy for Outstanding Achievement – Lee Adams


Many congratulations to all of the winners on the evening and throughout the year. 2011 was a great season of competition, so heres to more of the same in 2012!

The First Hillclimb Wedding of the Year

We hear that Pilbeam’s long-serving mechanic Mick Howlett (Pilbeam Mick to most people) and his fiance, hillclimb marshall Sue Fletcher were married at a cermony in Bourne, Lincolnshire on Thursday.

The happy couple attended the British Hillclimb Championship Awards at Chateau Impney last night as the start of their honeymoon.

Many congratulations to you both, may you have many happy years together.
