FINAL ROUND OF HILLCLIMB SERIES, 29/30 NOVEMBER

What a bumper event to finish the year! There was the biggest entry for a Club event for the year and, with a number of these entries being the Formula Libre hillclimb specials, there was a great atmosphere in the pits and lots of excitement on the track. As well as that, it was the final round of the TSA-SR Automotive Series and there were 7 competitors in contention for the outright win. Despite an ailing motor on his first run, Geoff Cohen managed to coax his Elfin over the finishing line to gain what turned out to be the essential 15 points to give him a well deserved series win.

Five class records were broken over the weekend with some of them broken multiple times. Shane Merrick broke the record he had set for his class at the previous hillclimb, Danny Mischok and Mark Crespan who hadn't run for a while came along and broke their previous records, Mark Pryor lowered his previous record and Steve Purdy and Chris Johns (in historic classes) took over the records for their classes.

Most outstanding of the day was the record breaking of Piers Harrex who broke Ken Graham's class record on his second run and then subsequently kept breaking each new record he had set until he ended up with 0.68s off the old record. We were left wondering at the end of the day if there had been another record set for the number of records broken at one event!

Although not a record breaker, the Audi Quattro of series sponsor Stewart Reid was spectacular on track and a class winner.

There were at least 20 Under 40s runs for the weekend - another record for a Club weekend! And, in the Top Six, the first three placegetters posted Under 40s times.

The event had the speed and excitement of a Championship event as the exploits of the Under 40s runners ( Neil Lewis, Michael von Rappard, Dean Amos and Ed McCane) were closely followed by Rod Johns (41.07) , Harold von Rappard (41.57) and David Homer (41.99). Fastest time of day was won by Dean Amos (38.79) who also won the Top Six with a 39.08.

The large number of competitors who remained for the presentation of trophies bore testimony to the quality of the event.  Thank you to all who made the event such a success
