Forrestburn Results – 28 August 2016

28 August 2016 - Monklands Sporting Car Club - Forrestburn Speed Hill Climb
The sun didn’t shine so much and it was fairly cold but the gremlins stayed away and most competitors had three practice runs. There were some spots of rain but nothing serious.

Leslie Mutch got BTD with 39.52 seconds but didn’t manage to break the hill record of 39.20s. Other awards went to John Hamilton for fastest Road Car and to John Lowe for fastest Modified Car. Jamie Gibbon was fastest in the historic classes.

The results are available to download here. Hope you had a great weekend. Thanks to the marshals without whom this event would not have taken place and to the officials, competitiors and everyone else. See you next time.

Finally here is another image gallery from photographer Chris Nicholson taken today:

Forrestburn Results – 27 August 2016

Alastair Reynold's Austin Super Accessories Special at Forrestburn Speed Hillclimb
For those of you who have been to Forrestburn on previous occasions but were not there today it may seem hard to believe but the weather was dry and it was pleasantly warm. Surprisingly there were no new class records but who is to say that Leslie Mutch (40.63s today and BTD) won’t eclipse the Lee Adams record from 29 August 2010 of 39.20 seconds – soon?

Other notables today included John Hamilton as the fastest Road Car, John Lowe as the fastest Modified Car and Neil Hopkinson as the fastest historic – though the class winners of the H Classes were Tom Richardson, Gordon McRobbie and Derek House (after applying their handicapping thing).

Anyway, the results are available to download here and we look forward to another great day tomorrow – fingers crossed re weather and gremlins. Meanwhile here is a late treat from photographer Chris Nicholson who was in the paddock today.
