BOC Prize-Giving

The Bugatti Owners Club held its annual Prize-Giving Luncheon at the Chateau Impney at Droitwich on November 26th last year, with their new Chairman Barry Price in control. We went in a Porsche 928, expecting to mingle with many exotic motor-cars. But the ice that morning had kept all the Bugattis at home, for fear of salt-pollution, and the car-park had only a light dusting of Ferraris and...

Hill Climb

James Thomson made up for his disappointment at Wiscombe Park by making fastest time of the day at the second round of the RAC Hill Climb Championship at Loton Pak on Easter Monday. The day was cold, rather windy but dry, and it was the same trio as at Wiscombe setting the fastest times in the top ten run off, albeit in a reversed order. Chris Cramer again failed to qualify, by just one hundredth...

British Hill-climb Championship

As mentioned in last month's Motor Sport, mid-season favourite for the Shell/RAC Hill-Climb Championship was David Hepworth and so it came as a surprise to no one when Hepworth, driving his 4WD Hepworth FF, or Guyson Shotblast Special as it is now known in deference to its new sponsors, took the title with a second place at Prescott behind a very on form Roy Lane (McLaren M10B). Although he was...

Hillclimb history

Sir, I have just received the May issue of Motor Sport. Good as ever, and the iPad facility is a really excellent innovation. Could I correct a couple of errors in your Race Retro report? Peter Lawson (not Lawton) won the British Hill Climb Championship only once, in 1968. Tony Marsh had won it for the sixth time in 1967. Lawson used the 4WD BRM P67 with 2.1-litre V8 which had briefly and...

Bugatti OC Victor Ludorum Trophy

This coveted award was awarded for 1976 to Roy Lane, and not as stated last month. Roy Lane also won the John Virr Trophy and Newton Trophy. Apologies.

Books for Christmas

"The Four-Wheeled Morgan, Volume One The Flat-Radiator Models" by Ken Hall. 136 pp. 7 in. x 91 in. (Motor Racing Publications, 28 Devonshire Road, London W4 2HD £5.45) One would be justified in saying that the writing of books about the Morgan has been somewhat overdone, fascinating as is the subject. Because when I remarked last month, when reviewing Peter Garnier's IPC review of the Morgan...

Hillclimb review

As reported briefly last month, James Thomson clinched the National Hill Climb Championship before the final round at Mune at the end of September. His final score of 98 points out of a possible maximum of 100 is impressive by any standards, that he should have achieved this in his first year of serious single-seater hill climbing at the tender age of 20 is doubly so: there has been talk of a...

RAC hillclimbs fifty not out

The evergreen RAC British Hillclimb Championship celebrated its Golden Jubilee in style at Shelsley Walsh on June 6, when all but two of the 19 living champions returned to the classic hill which with the Bo'ness venue in Scotland, scene of the inaugural event, no longer available hosted the second round on June 21, 1947. Six-time champ Tony Marsh (who first won in 1955 in a Cooper-JAP, and...

Ton-Uphill boys pull them in

The biggest crowd ever seen at Shelsley flocked to the historic climb in August to celebrate Midland AC's Centenary. With a joint VSCC/MAC meeting on Saturday and an Invitational event on Sunday, the occasion represented every era of the sport. Graeme Wight Jr set the outright pace in his Gould V6. But alongside this future champion were stars such as Roy Lane, reunited with his old McRae GM1,...

Brookes to return for RAC Historics

Russell Brookes, one of Britain's leading contemporary rally driver in the 1970s, returns to the cockpit to tackle this weekend's RAC International Historic Rally, with journalist Maurice Hamilton in the hotseat of the Porsche 911 which has won the event for the past two years with Jimmy McRae at the wheel. The Worcestershire ace is seeded two, but will not have things all his own way in the...
