For the second time in seven weeks, James Baxter pipped Mac Hulbert to win a VSCC hillclimb.
It was the final run of the weekend that proved the fastest as Baxter hurled his Frazer Nash single-seater to fastest time of the day with a superb climb in 42.01sec. Hulbert ended the weekend half a second away in ERA R4D as Baxter repeated his victory from Loton Park in June. Also in the hunt for FTD was Robert Cobden, who continued his excellent season in his Riley Falcon Special to get beneath the 43sec mark, while Martin Davenport was as intrepid as ever in the Davenport Spider, with a best climb in just over 43sec.
David Baker claimed a new class record in his immaculate aero-engined Piccard-Pictet and Brian White had to press on in his Frazer Nash-BMW to beat Guy Spollon’s Riley Blue Streak to class spoils.
