BRITISH & MIDLAND HILL CLIMB CHAMPIONSHIP EVENT DETAILS ANNOUNCED

The iconic Prescott Speed Hill Climb will play host to many of the country’s top drivers this weekend (2/3 Sept) when the Bugatti Owners Club run venue plays host for the second time this season to the MSUK British Hillclimb Championship.


The prestigious series previously visited the Gloucestershire venue in April when fellow Gould drivers Wallace Menzies and Scott Moran each winning a top twelve run off.


The most recent round of the Championship at the Loton Park venue in Shropshire produced another Top twelve victory for Scott with the second one going to Sean Gould.


Nevertheless, it is defending champion Wallace Menzies who tops the point table ahead of Moran with Matthew Ryder lying in third place.


Meanwhile, in the BHC Cup, which sees points awarded based on competitors’ performance within their respective classes, there is currently a three-way tie at the top of the points table, involving Allan McDonald driving a Force sports racing car, Duncan Barnes in a Norma M20FC and Johnathan Varley, son of longtime hillclimber Peter, at the wheel of a GWR Predator.


With only one further event in the 2023 series to come following this weekend’s event, there are still plenty of battles to be resolved in the various Championship classes as well.


The weekend also features the hugely popular Midland Hillclimb Championship. Currently it is Rodney Eyles who leads the series in his Alfa Romeo 4C. He is 11 points clear of Jonathan Varley while Steve Garner lies third in his Westfield Sei, a further 7 points back. Both Eyles and Varley broke long standing class records during the previous round at Shelsley Walsh.


A capacity entry and diverse array of machinery including saloons, sports cars and single seaters will be in action each day with the quickest of the single seaters capable of outpacing a Formula One car up to one hundred miles an hour.


The climax of the meeting comes with the two top twelve run-offs featuring the twelve fastest cars across the course of the event.


Saturday will also feature a Spitfire Flyover from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight (weather dependant), scheduled for 1500hrs, plus demonstration runs from Formula Student, a trade village and much much more.


Practice is schedule to get underway at 08.30am Saturday with timed runs and run offs on Sunday. Tickets bought in advance are £18 each day for adults or £30 for a weekend ticket. Under 16s, BOC Members and carers are admitted free of charge. Camping pitches are available for £10.


As ever, a full range of refreshments and meals will be available at the Prescott Clubhouse and various outlets around the Hill.
