After missing the 2017 edition we were back for the 68th running of the Birkett 6hrs relay race. The day started out grey and once the rain started during the the 3rd hour of the race it only got worse. It did nothing to dampen the racing though and in the scratch race a late safety car period saw the gap between the top two teams dramatically reduced. Long time leaders Cupra Racing held on to win by half a second from the hard charging Breakell Racing Heroes, after the 6 hours of racing. In the handicap race it was the Red Rascal team who took victory by just over half a minute from the Mostly Rusty Two Seaters. Read More »

A glorious day at Long Compton greeted the 35 crews who started the event, with 33 completing the days 3 passes across the 8 hills.

With a revision to hill 6 for the next run low scores were achievable and in the end it was John Fack who took victory with a total of 20 points. Ian Veale took 2nd overall with 26 points in what proved to be a tight battle for 2nd overall with Ian Wright 3rd on 27 points and Josh Veale 4th with 28 points. Read More »

After a wonderful days trialing last year at Plashes Farm we had no hesitation about returning in 2018, especially as it is the closed season for modern trials. After weeks of dry weather some rain did fall overnight but the tests were all incredibly dry so the difficulty had to be stepped up to provide a challenge. Once again there was a bumper entry with well over 40 crews starting the event across the historic and post historic classes. Read More »

Julian Fack was the best of the rest back on 24 points, completing the podium. Read More »
