The Word from North of the Border

We haven’t had a proper update from the Scottish Hillclimb scene since back before the Doune National. Our Scottish Correspondent Danger Mouth has been in touch with this report on his recent travels.

It was nice to see everyone at Doune.  Lee Adams won both run offs  with Scott second on both.  Other Scottish interest in the run offs was Steve Marr in the ex. Rob Barksfield PCD Saxon, but unfortunately it broke.  Wallace Menzies has a car that does not sound nice but goes well and he scored a 3rd and a 4th.  Trevor Willis did not have a very good weekend in the new OMS25 V8.  After having an off at Garden Gate on Saturday and repeating this, but not as bad, in the second run off.  Alistair Crawford did his usual of qualifying for an odd run off and got a point.  Jos Goodyear had another trip up north with some sucess getting points in both run offs and keeping it on the track.  Dave Uren had a good weekend qualifying the green Force for both run offs but not scoring any points.
Last weekend it was the annual Scottish Sprint at Alford.  First time I have been there and it was a good day. Alford Sprint is held on the oval go kart track at the Grampian Transport Museum in the middle of Alford.  Daughter of Pete Lawton had one of her first goes that I know of in the yellow Citroen Saxo.  Donald Macaskill was entered but didn’t race as I think the car was broken yet again.  Graeme Bremner was very quick as usual in the turbo charged Radical. FTD went to Roy Munro in the red OMS. George Ritchie was Clerk and showed off his Ferrari 458 italia. 
It was good to see that Wallace Menzies took his second ever win in Jersey and Tom New got his with the Chris Merrick Gould in Le Val des Terres.
We will be out for the last two meetings of the year in the British Championship at Doune and then Loton Park.
The next Scottish round for us will be Fintray in August but I think the next round is back at Kames at the weekend.

Thanks for the news DM, we look forward to your next report and to seeing you back at a BHC round soon!
