New Record Set at Loton Park

Tuesday 30 June 2015

Members of the Hagley & District Light Car Club came together at Loton Park on 13 and 14 June for the first of two weekends hosting three major British hill climb championships.

Saturday was almost washed away, but it didn’t stop Jos Goodyear from breaking a new course record. Having suffered disappointment in the first top 12 run-off for the British Hill Climb Championship, when his drive chain broke, Jos went on to set a record of 44.35 in class K(ii) for forced-injection racing cars up to 2000cc and won the second championship run-off. The championship is still led by Alex Summers, with 103 points, the only driver to have scored on all 12 rounds this year.

In the class-based Leaders Championship, Colin Satchell took his fifth win in as many events in his Peugeot 205, coming from behind as his co-driver, Paul Drowne, led after the first runs. Colin leads the championship with 47 points.

The third major series of the weekend was the Midland Hill Climb Championship, with reigning champion Mike Turpin in the Vauxhall VX220 joining Chris Aspinall in his Empire Wraith as joint leader, both with four wins and a second place, giving them 42 points.

HDLCC also hosted two championships for the Porsche Club GB, the new National Hill Climb Championship and the Speed Series.

The next weekend at Loton Park is 25 and 26 July, when HDLCC will run two one-day meetings and host events for a number of different championships.
