The Supplementary Regulations and Entry Forms are now available for the August 2016 events which will consist of a double-header on 27-28 August 2016. We are now taking entries for this events and the details of how to enter are on our events page and here.

We really would appreciate it if everyone used our online entry system as it cuts down the amount of work we have to do in organising the event. It takes a lot of time and effort to type sometimes barely legible hand written entries into the system – you know who you are.

You can enter these hill climb events from the marvellous online system which you can access from here. We have retained the option to download the form as a PDF, print it, fill it in with a Biro and send it back to Marion in the time-honoured manner. You also have the option to fill in the PDF digitally on your computer then print it and send it to Marion with your cheque.

We are looking for a record entry this time so get clicking!

MSCC Forrestburn Tracknight 6 July 2016

mscc-tracknight-06072016 - The Steaming Citroen
On another typical dreary night of weather at Forrestburn a few stalwarts, some returning old hands and some welcome new faces slithered their way up the hill on the permanently wet track. Unusually for a track night, mechanical attrition was high but most of the problems were temporary. The Raptor suffered a sticking throttle which made life even more exciting for the pilot on a slippery track, the Citroen imitated a kettle and the Ford engined Midget required a plug change to remove a misfire. There were no off-track excursions and the hardy kept plugging away until the finish at 8.30pm – at which point the rain stopped of course!
