This weekend sees the third round of the BMTR Tyres Midland Hill Climb Championship, HDLCC’s own Allswage Loton Park Championships plus the Paul Matty Hill Climb Challenge.
Paul, who will be competing at Chateau Impney this July with his wife, June, started the challenge in 1991. Taking place over both days, the Paul Matty Hill Climb Challenge gathers together a huge range of Lotuses from road-going Elans and Elises to powerful and rare racing cars running in two classes.
The cars compete over eight events, six hill climbs and two sprints, including one at the Lotus factory Test Track in Norfolk with Paul and June both taking part in their Lotus Type 35 and Lotus 20/22.
The Midland championship is held over ten rounds at four of the leading British hill climb venues, while the Allswage Championship has rounds at all the HDLCC events and regularly attracts 40 entries with cars ranging from standard saloon and sports cars to the latest racing cars with Formula 1 technology. Competitors score points based on their experience and previously recorded times at Loton Park.
Practice and racing will start on both days at 8.30am, with a full commentary. Tickets cost £12.50 for adults while children under 16 go free.
We wish all the competitors heading to Loton Park this weekend the very best of luck.
