MSCC activities and membership
There’s a fabulous event coming up in a couple of weeks which you simply have to attend so get your entries in now. The Grass Autotest at Coulter near Biggar has been running for a few years now and last year the event was filmed by Alfred Hitchcock…
Monklands Sporting Car Club Ltd will promote two National B status Hill Climb Meetings at Forrestburn near Kirk o’Shotts OS Map 65/861649. The dates are Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 August 2019.
We had a very successful tracknight on Wednesday evening. In fact, to quote one of the participants, “Good weather, good crowd, good “craic” and ran all the way until 9.00pm!” What’s not to like? Why not try to get involved in the next one – it’s on 7 August. If you are interested get your name down early.
Forrestburn Speed Hill Climb
Forrestburn is the first purpose-built speed hill climb track to be built in the United Kingdom since the construction of the facility at Brooklands in 1907. It was planned in the early 1990s as the first phase of a larger motor sport complex including international and club circuits accessed from Junction 5 of the M8 Motorway. With its dramatic scenery, remoteness from centres of population but with proximity to the M8, Forrestburn is an ideal location for a motor sport complex.

Track and events
The track layout was designed by the founding MSCC committee members with assistance from Derek Ongaro of the RAC MSA and former Scottish Hill Climb Champion Kenny Allan with advice from many others on safety and marshal requirements. The track is 1030 metres in length rising from 221m to 246m AOD with a maximum gradient of 1:4. Forrestburn hosts rounds of the Scottish Hillclimb Championship as well as Production Car Trials, Autotests and Track Nights.
