VSCC Shelsley Walsh

It was yet another Shelsley Walsh victory for ERA R4D in early July when Mac Hulbert stormed to fastest time of the day in the most famous car from the venue’s 101-year history.

On a swelteringly hot day conditions worked against Hulbert as he chased his own pre-war hill record, but his second run in 34.03sec was still more than two seconds clear of his rivals.

Although Paul Richardson nipped in to clinch second-FTD in ERA R14B on his second run, Martin Spencer starred with his bravado in GN Spider II, getting down to 36.17sec on his second climb.

Notable class wins went to Mark Walker (1908 Panhard Levassor), Guy Spollon (Riley Blue Streak) and Richard Scaldwell (GN Jap).
