Hillclimb Challenge Weekend
Well Day 1 Saturday was a washout, with the terrible weather causing a postponement of the gravel day.  The heavy rain overnight Friday and Saturday morning meant that the pit paddock would have been unusable and the road would have suffered damage from our use.  So the decision was taken to postpone the event.  We're working on a replacement date and will let you know as soon as its sorted.

Day 2 on Sunday was much better weather-wise and 36 competitors turned out for the tarmac hillclimb.  This was the first event to use our new timing equipment and we can happily say that it worked well, with very few glitches. 

There was tight competition for honours in this event, as it forms part of the Hillclimb Challenge with the Taylor Race and Rally Trophy for overall honours and the MBOP 2WD Challenge Trophy for 2WD honours up for grabs.  Phil Campbell put in a flyer in his last run to pip Phil Jones, with Mitch James doing a demon run also on the last run (although his could have ended in disaster, with a big spin over the finish line sending him into the fence - which was the only thing between him and the valley below).  Good enough though to catapult Mitch into second place.

In the 2WD stakes, Shane Wright and Chris Hawkes duelled all day at the head of the 2WD field, with Shane taking the honours in the last run by just 0.6 of a second.  Great contest.  Shane Tofts in his Mazda RX7 came home in third place in this group.

Results are now posted on the Results page.

MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL TIME
