British Hillclimb Championship, 2021

Some great climbs at Gurston Down over the weekend, including 2 wins on Sunday with a new hill record for Wallace Menzies.

Sadly the second run off was dominated by Wil Hall's massive off at Shepherd's Hut. The good news is that he's okay which is more than can be said for the car.

Stunning how quick those guys are going now, the speed trap figures are insane and they keep moving the goalposts of hill records. Looking forward to Wiscombe next month, hopefully I get an entry for the Interclub event...especially as being 10 seconds slower means I get much better value for money than Wallace does

Remarkably close finish at the top at Shelsley last weekend, a whole host of very closely matched drivers in a variety of vehicles. Here's hoping Will can get the car back together soon to add another potential winner.

Having canned LM and N24 plans, a road trip 'oop north called. First visit to Doune yesterday by arrangement with the organisers to write a spectator photographers guide for pistonclick.com

Hill records, the tightest of winning margins, popping and banging echoing round the Meadow, super light under the trees - an initial, rather random selection of photos can be found here - https://flic.kr/s/aHsmW7LQkw

I sense it might not be last visit to "The King of Hills"

I enjoyed seeing your photos - great day to be there with new hill record. Looking forward to spectating at the September event, provided restrictions are removed.

Turning in to quite the battle, judging by the times Wallace had it fairly easy at Harewood. The photos after the rain hit look crazy though, no surprise they had to call the event off.

On to Wiscombe next, still waiting to hear if I've got an entry to the Interclub event on either day but if not then I'll still try to head up on the Sunday. I think the last time the national championship was there saw a new hill record so hopefully the weather will be kind and that envelope may be pushed some more.

I had a very enjoyable day at Shelsley Walsh last weekend for their nostalgia weekend and am following that up with a trip to Prescott on Saturday for my first taste of competitive Hillclimb action. Very much looking forward to it!

Is there anywhere I can find a timetable and entry list? The Prescott, BHC and Barc sites don't have anything obvious but I may not be looking in the right places. Thanks!

Timetable - they go up in batches until everyone has gone up; then they do it again; then they do it to qualify for the Top 12 Run Off (that's only Sunday by the look of things). I'm elsewhere this weekend, but will be doing the September Prescott. The top class is stunning !

There should be an entry list online but may not be until nearer the weekend.

If I might be so bold, this will give you an idea of Prescott https://www.pistonclick.com/prescott-speed-hill-climb. It looks like there are some Covid rules to follow on the website

Thank you! Yes I have seen that and I must also thank you for the Shelsley Walsh guide.

Covid Pass (Vacc or test) requested for Prescott (though they will just take your temp if you don't have the app...). Also only pre-ordered tickets, none on the gate.

Thanks! Yes the annnouncers at Shelsley spent the whole day faintly bemused at what was going on, which rarely bore much resemblance to the published timings .

Interesting that Saturday is practice and Sunday competition for the main competition. So Saturday at Prescott I can expect to see three BHC practice runs?

Yeah that's usually the case, or certainly is at Wiscombe. Sunday you would see 2 'timed' runs as qualifying and 2 runoffs, which is the top 12. The speed of the guys at the top is unreal, well worth watching.

I'm off to Prescott on Saturday and Shelsley on Sunday for my first hillclimb spectating of the season.

I notice Prescott are asking you to bring proof of vaccination or a -ve test result but then say if you don't have it they will just do a temperature test - which if it like the ones they did at Thruxton just measure how effective your car aircon is.

Anyway, I've not been to Prescott this century and never been to Shelsley so looking forward to it.

Weather looks 'interesting' though.

Well I've had my entry confirmed to both days of the 'interclub' event at Wiscombe, so I should be heading there next weekend to go around 10 seconds slower than the quick guys

Last event out at Clay Pigeon this last weekend wasn't a complete success, gave the tyres a bit of a whack so will be hunting for a decent fibreglasser in the off season
