It was another close one down in Frocester as Roland Uglow took win number 3 in a row, this season. He had started round 3 trailing Ian Veale by a single point, with John Fack just a point further back, but thanks to five 0’s across the 8 hills he set a superb score of just 3 points to take victory from Veale by 8 points. Uglow really is in fine form and the BTRDA Gold Star Championship final in Penrith, next January, should be a really cracker. Paul Price matched Veale’s score of 12 on round 3 to secure 3rd overall by just two points from Richard Sharp who notched up a score of 9 points on the final round. Fack dropped back to sixth overall as he failed to make a low score on final round of hills. Read More »

Another Winter closes in and the draw of the velodrome is too much to ignore. After taking in the London Six Day last year we swapped it out for the Revolution Series this year. With the opening round down in Lee Valley and the final to come in Manchester, just 6 weeks after, we will be getting closely acquainted with the cycling stars once more. Arguably the cream of the crop were to be found in the Women’s races with Lizzie Deignan making a rare excursion from the road to take on the likes Dani Rowe (nee King), Katie Archibald and Elinor Barker (and that is just the Brits). With Ed Clancy riding in the JLT Condor kit too we were guaranteed good racing. Read More »

Just a week after our first visit to Shelsley Walsh, we made our first foray to Prescott for the VSCC Cotswold Trial. The day started out overcast and okay but soon descended in to light drizzle that refused to budge for the rest of the day. It made many of the hills very challenging, even at Prescott. Still it all part of the challenge and with multiple classes to fight for here are the trophy winners from the event – The Harold Powell Cup to the overall winner – Wiliam McVicker; the Inderwick Cup to the best Vintage Car – Stephen Fathers; the Cotswold Cup to the best Class 0 Car – George Gosling; and the DHO Spirit of the Cotswold Trial Award – Annie Scaldwell.

The Motorsport Safety Fund has decided to wind up its operations and hand its training resources over to the UK motorsport’s governing body, the MSA.

The organisation’s remaining funds will be transferred to the British Motor Sport Training Trust once the winding up process is complete.

Fund chairman, Dr Ian Roberts, said: “The Fund has made a major contribution to motorsport safety in the 45 years since it was established, following the death of Roger Williamson during the Dutch Grand Prix at Zandvoort.

“However, recent developments in training and motorsport technology have led us to conclude that, if we continued, we would end up attempting to duplicate the activities of national and international organisations that have greater resources and access to technical expertise.” Read More »

A new division within the MSA British Historic Rally Championship, called BHRC2, will turn the spotlight on the Category 1 (pre-1968) and 1600cc cars in the championship.

The new Rally 2WD event format, and revised running order on gravel events, has rebuilt interest in gravel rallying for these cars. Read More »
