The shot at the top of the hill, with the rest of the track below and the countryside stretching into the distance, is glorious!

Thank you - been playing with my new 24-70mm to get the wider view.

Although the last few at the Esses are back to the trusty 70-200mm.

Looks like it was quite the event, 0.04 between the first two in the first run off then two new records in the second. Apparently Wallace would have wrapped up the championship had Alex not broken the record, which he did by 0.01 seconds....although I think he needs 4 hill records and Menzies to not score any points!

Slightly calmer down at Wiscombe, but I did at least manage a new PB...just knocking 0.01 off the previous. Very unexpected though, didn't think the tyres still had that kind of time in them.

Congrats on the PB! Just watched the vid - that’s a long and winding road . Definitely on my must-visit list for next year. Hillclimbing has been the revelation of 2021 for me.

Well, what a day at Loton Park ! Multiple runs under the hill record and more wins for Wallace. My impressions of the day here - morning and afternoon albums - https://www.flickr.com/photos/dwh38/albums

Looks incredibly pretty! Definitely a priority for me next year.

Anyone with an inside line on 2022 calendar? I want to start planning!

Brilliant, thank you. I'll be able to add Harewood and Loton Park trips next year (alongside Prescott and Shelsley). Sadly Gurston Down and Wiscombe Park clash with other things.

What an unbelievable day. Never seen a hill record so smashed in one day before. I think there were 5 drivers and a total of 17 runs under the old record, nearly a second and a half taken off the mark. I was slow to pick up that Paul Haimes broke his class record as well. Stunning driving at the limit with nothing more than a handful of minor offs.
