Thank you, seems my mojo is slowly rising!


Fingers are crossed we have a place at the Prescott 24/25 first round of the Midland Hillclimb Championship, it will be so good to get the car on a hill.


will be an awkward meeting due to restrictions, but we are all so used to ' 2 meters and a Mask' nowadays, rest will be normal.
As most hillclimbers are over 50, or in my case WELL over 50, we will be the most protected group in the area!
My 2nd jab is the day after the event.


Started the Lola yesterday to check on the LiPo battery fitted that gave us a bit of reluctance on the rollers, everything fine.
After holding the carbs open a touch to get things warming it settled to a very stable and super smooth tick over with electric throttle response and really even exhaust flow free of the occasional 'pulse' that had started to creep into the engine which started off this mini adventure.


Really sounds nice and sorted, must have a 1,000,000 bhp more than before, esp with the new stickers on the nose.....


Yep, boy racer to the bone marrow.

Glad it's all going well. Be so good to see that car compete, really looks the business

This is what is so great about hillclimbing is the variety of cars that compete and it's relatively cheap for people to do. Proper grass roots motorsport. Best of luck. Hopefully all that effort will be worth it. And love the colour scheme too.

Indeed, you will never find a paddock in UK motorsport so varied as a good Club meeting at a good hillclimb (or sprint).
Sports Libre, (liberated sports cars) has widened to anything goes, just the wheels need to be covered and you need all the safety stuff , but not over the top, ie no FIA seat, no compulsory fire system, but dated seat belts, full HANNS helmet restraints etc.


Brings out the Wacky Racers.


At Shelsley Walsh the top car approach bottom Esse at 140 mph through the speed trap and are still accelerating.
I brave it at 89 and ready on the brakes.....


3 weeks to Prescott and we shall see who is in my class. I think I will be in a difficult position again!

So!
To Prescott this weekend for the first 2 rounds of the Midland Hillclimb Championship, my 26th year.
Just the 2 of us in the class, my old oh-so-close sparing partner, Nigel in his 4.8 litre NG V8.
I hope he is as rusty as me!
The fast boys are still locked in Scotland so a respite come early.


Started the car a few days ago and it was great, numbers and go-much-faster stickers on and a quick wipe over and we are ready to go.


Confirmed for Shelsley in early May and I think Loton is assured to.


Slowly slowly catch the monkey will be the order of the day.

Thank you both; just found out Mike Manning in his 2 litre turbo Fiesta is transferred to my class...
That is a very very very very fast combo, I'm doomed!
He is a great bloke too just to make it worse and an ex rally cross champion.


It will be nice just to be out there.
The Lola looks great sitting in the garage tonight!

Ref pictures, I think on the Sunday coming there is live streaming of the day, car by car right through the track length and is really good coverage.
You can find it on YouTube and other media.
