Andrews and Howells record equal times to share Loton Park win

A very difficult weekend weather wise with lots of showers on Friday and Saturday and it looked as if it would be the same on Sunday but thank goodness it stayed dry.

We welcomed two new contenders, Duncan Andrews with a very smart and highly modified Cayman and Ross McDonald with the most beautiful 911SC which to my old ears sounded quite superb.

First practice runs on Saturday...

Norris takes Class 1 victory at Gurston Down

Gurston Down Hillclimb 27th & 28th May 2017

With three practice runs on Saturday and starting in early batches we hoped all the runs would be complete before the rain appeared.

The first runs were testing the surface which looked damp but the second run before lunch saw some more serious times in the Modified Class P1 with Andy Norris leading with 35.67 followed closely by...

First round - Wiscombe Park Hillclimb - 22nd & 23rd April 2017

First we had a big welcome to the new members competing in the championship, David Hilton and Tim Barber sharing a 996 GT3 previously owned by Peter Turnbull and Phil Price with a fearsome looking 930 turbo, all experienced Hillclimbers.

Wiscombe looked superb and I am sure has never been so dry for the whole weekend. It was a great start to the season although the first climbs were,...

Paul Howells sews up Hillclimb Championship

The final round of the Porsche Club National Hillclimb Championship was held at Prescott on 1st October.

Decidedly inclement weather made for very tricky conditions as the Hillclimb Championship joined the Porsche Club Speed Championship for their final round at this prestigious meeting. With a very strong entry, there was a large display of Porsches.

This was a one day event...

One Hillclimb Round To Go

This was our second visit to Loton Park as it is very well liked by competitors although some admit it is difficult to learn. The weather was unpredictable as it started wet on Saturday morning but quickly dried out, but it kept threatening to rain and some were heads down looking at the apps on their mobile phones and presumably praying for the sun to shine.

Saturday saw three runs...

Howells continues his winning streak

There was a smaller entry for this event as many were on holiday or had other family events. We arrived on Friday in hot sun and a beautiful day.
Saturday morning was dry but overcast and with rain forecast. All our contestants managed two dry runs before the rain started except for poor Peter Turnbull who forgot to replace the bonnet pins after scrutineering. Before he reached the...

Championship Hotting up after Wiscombe Hillclimb

Following a terrible journey down to Devon in heavy rain on a crowded motorway we were rewarded with a super weekend of good weather and close competition. We also had a better entry with only one regular, Mel Spears, preferring to go to Silverstone Classic for the Porsche gathering.
Paul Howells made a slow start and blamed it on not having been to Wiscombe for many years but Jonathan...

Wins for Ayres and Howells at Harewood Hillclimb

With fewer entries for this event due to holidays, business trips and the distance we still retained most of our serious competitors. The drive up to Harewood was much easier on the Thursday and others had the same idea so there was a party on Thursday and Friday evenings.
Saturday was wet and miserable although there were dry spells and the high wind did dry the road surface but times...

Turnbull Takes First Win at Gurston Down

Many of the regular competitors were unable to make the Gurston Down round so we arrived with only seven entries. Simon Tarling was there for the first time and very keen to see the course. The weather was dry and sunny but the wind was very cold for the whole weekend and rain was forecast for 3.0pm on Saturday. We saw some big black clouds but the rain never materialised.

As well as...

Howells and Lancaster-Gaye Tied after Round One

Our first meeting of the year started with a full entry, improved on last year, and in the dry although rain was forecast for Sunday, but we were all excited to start a new season. We had two new entrants, Terry Clifford an experienced hillclimber in single seaters but now in a Cayman and Christian Ayers who was just starting with a Cayman GT4, both in the road going class.

Saturday was...
