Teague Retains Class 6 Title in Car He?d Never Driven

Monday 18 July 2016

When he couldn?t get last year?s class-winning GN Wasp ready in time for the hill climb, Winston Teague wasn?t sure he would be able to take part this year. But then he got to drive his ?nemesis?.

“My brother-in-law was unable to go to the hill climb in his Hardy Special, so he offered it to me, even though I’d never driven it before. It’s a very special car and it’s extremely fast. It’s usually my nemesis in the class!”

Up against tough competition from both James Gunn in the MG Q-Type Rep and Eddie Williams in the Austin 7 Shelsley Special, who finished just a fraction of a second behind him, Winston thoroughly enjoyed his drive in the Hardy.

“Having never driven the car before, I wasn’t at all confident of victory. I think if we’d had another run, both Eddie and James would have beaten me. The Hardy is considerably more powerful than the Wasp and handles in a completely different way.”

Finishing in a time of 47.25 seconds – more than two seconds faster than last year – Winston is very happy to have beaten his 2015 class record.
