MGCCQ HILLCLIMB SERIES, Rd 5 - 30 - 31  July, 2022 

A crisp weekend greeted those who attended the event. One could say it will help acclimitaise those members who intend to camp at the Leyburn Historical Street Sprints on 19-20 August. It will be colder.

 

A welcome back to three of the top runners who missed last hillclimb due to a variety of mechanical issues. Dean Tighe, currently leading the New South Wales State Championship series, recorded the Fastest Time of Day with a best run of 37.51 seconds from Warwick Hutchinson (38.06 seconds), Brett Bull (38.56 seconds) and David Quelch (42.40 seconds).

 

The result of the Regularity class saw Shaun Rankin (BMW Z4 Coupe) and Robert Martin (Daihatsu Handi) tied for the best performance for the event as both lost 18 points. Again the Anable family provided close competition in their Eurotune BMW sedans with Glenn being the quickest with a 46.12 from Doug (46.25) and Scott recording a best run of 47.06 seconds.

Fastest Sports Car went to Michael Larymore (Toyota MR2, 44.82 seconds) whilst Gavin Taylor was the fastest Sedan driver in his Volkswagen Golf recording a best run of 45.46 seconds.
