Roundabout Fun for Frazer Nash Shelsley

Saturday 9 July 2016

?I made a complete mess of the roundabout!" said Geraint Lewis of his first run in the Frazer Nash Shelsley Single Seater.

As the car is chain-driven, when he approached the roundabout in 2nd gear, he couldn’t change back into 1st. But he’s learning from his mistakes for later in the weekend.

It’s his second time at the Hill Climb and, talking of learning from mistakes, Geraint has noticed far less people than last year have been messing up the first left turn of the course.

The 1936 car was built for under 750kg racing and was one of two factory cars raced in the 1930s, although it wasn’t successful in period, racing against bigger budget rivals.

Geraint bought it in 2006 and has used it for racing more than hill climbing.

He said: “I’m getting to quite like hill climbing now and Chateau Impney is a lovely course! The car is very powerful and is good in the wet so, unlike everyone else, I’d like some rain later!”
