It was a welcome return to Plashes Farm for the 2021 running of the HSCC trial, on Frank Lyons farm. As always a bumper entry was present which had the knock on effect of taking its time for the crews to complete the hills, spread across the estate. Only two runs were able to completed thanks to this but the action was still good and it was great to be out trialing once again. Read More »

Unlike the Summer of 2018 this year has seen some heavy downpours and our chosen test for the first round of hills saw only Mark & Linda Howse (Impunity) along with Josh & Elaine Veale (Kincraft) clear hill 3, as most crews failed at the side traverse between posts 10 & 7. If they did manage that then a 5 was the best score as a muddy bank to post 6 saw off most other crews. Howse & Veale completed a clean sweep across the 3 rounds we watched, clearing the hills with style. 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 »

Our 2nd year in a row at the HSCC Championship Finals saw the threat of rain and strong wins ready to influence the season finale. The showers were light but they did play their part with two memorable highlights from the day. The penultimate qualifying session for the Historic Touring Cars ended with drizzle and whilst many took to the pit lane with no chance of improving their times, a brave few stayed out and decided to make the most of the conditions. Watching a Sunbeam Imp and then Ford Anglia drifting round Luffield will stay in the memory for some time. The final race of the day was decided on tyre strategy and when that went wrong Frank Lyons took his pole sitting Gurney Eagle from 4thoverall, after two laps, in to the pits. He emerged a lap down but the remainder of the 20 minute race proved to be a master class as he unlapped himself and then set about catching the leaders again. It was tight and a last lap pass around the outside, at Luffield saw Lyons emerge victorious after a scintillating race. Read More »

Another deviation from our usual form of motorsport as we dived in to our 2nd ever HSCC Historic Sporting Trial, this time held at Plashes Farm, Hertfordshire. The atmosphere was excellent once again with all crews enjoying the days sport and sharing some friendly banter. Mark Howse (Facsimile) cleared all of the tests we witnessed with ease as did Steve Courts (Facsimile), showing his 51 years experience as a sporting trialist. Read More »

After the championship finals last year we took in the HSCC International Trophy, thankfully on the dry day of racing. The already packed schedule had been bolstered by an extra race from the Saturday and with the track dry, the drivers could unleash the full power of their historic cars. The schedule had a few stand out races with the Guards Trophy race as the centrepiece. Andrew Kirkaldy & Sandy Watson took their Chevron B8 to victory in that race and Kirkaldy took a solo win in the Pre ’80 Endurance race in Watson’s Chevron B19, another race to delight the senses.

hsccfinals16-26A change to our schedule saw us take in a trip to the National circuit, at Silverstone, for HSCC Championship Finals. The day started out wet and a downpour resulted in mayhem on the track with two accidents in the Formula 3 practice. It was the afternoon before racing resumed and a total of 13 races took place on a drying track which soon became totally dry. The highlight of the day for us were the Formula 5000 cars with their awesome V8 engines bellowing round for the Derek Bell Trophy. There was great action amongst the Historic Touring Cars too with the Minis holding the advantage in the slippery conditions before race two saw the big US saloons take control on a now dry track. A good day out with something a little different for us. Read More »
