Finally found my 1979 season results! Have scanned the results sheets from Bodiam with my new and untried scanner so hope this works! Also, the results were printed on foolscap rather than A4 so some missing text mey be evident!

Bodiam Hill Climb 23rd September 1979

Tim,

Good work. The only thing I got wrong was the date. Here is what Autosport had to say - and I'm not sure now when this was published - (does anybody know? Page # etc.):

Controversy at
Bodiam

Trevor Stiles, driving his Formula Ford
1600 Crosslé, set BTD at the Bodiam
Hillclimb in Sussex on Saturday. His
time of 25.1s was 1sec outside Doc
Willoughby's record, which stands from
last year.
The meeting was the scene of con-
troversy over the eligibility of 'road going
cars' running on racing tyres, This led to
the exclusion of over 1300cc class winner
Ian Crammond (RS2000) and Deben-
hams Escort racer George Polley, who
finished fourth. Crammond, who was
protested by Graham Holmes (declared
the class winner after a stewards meet-
ing), has appealed and the matter will go
before an RAC Tribunal.
The class for road saloons up to
1300cc was won by Martin Kelly who,
despite running on slicks, was not af-
fected by the protest and retained his
class win.
Stiles beat A. Thompson's Brabham-
Holbay to BTD by a mere 0.03sec and
Barry Dutnall's 3.5-litre Brabham was
third, just 0.1 sec behind. Dave West's
Caterham 7 was easily the quickest of
the modsports car and was only 0.5sec
off BTD.

Hi Tim, if you have any pics of this era it would be great to see them. Looking through the results I may have added another piece to the jigsaw puzzle that is my car. I think it appears in the results, Datsun 240z driven by John Rich. John bought the dutch/Janspeed group 5 race car from Janspeed around this time and this is the first time I have found any reference to it being used.

Cheers Ben

Have found a couple of pics from our time at Bodiam in '79 and '80 with the Wimhurst FF1600. Car #69 is me in '79 (pics taken by T. Johnson Photographs) and #44 is my brother, Tony, in '80 (pics by Steve Jones).

Sorry! That's not right! Should have been FOUR different shots. Will try again!

Damn! There are four pics just all attached. Hope that's ok?

Does anyone know if Richard [Doc] Thompson, who was a regular winner at Bodiam in the 80s, is still around?
If so, please can they put him in touch with me
chris[AT]oldracingcars[DOT]com

Thanks

Hi All, interesting reading about Bodiam Hillclimb. My father-in-law (Nick Ramus) was a regular at Bodiam. Have just dug out some old pictures of him in his Sprite, Lotus Elan and TR7. It was Nick that got me into racing in the 90's and I'm still competing. Knowing Nick, he will still have all the programmes and result sheets somewhere. Will see what I can find...
