Once again a fantastic days racing at the wonderful Harewood Hillclimb. The round has really gone down well with the BOC runners and was universally praised for its friendly atmosphere , smooth organisation and the ability to offer up to 4 timed runs.


Racing cars was won on the day by Andy Tippett (Handicap) and by Richard Jones (Scratch)  , Richard lowering the BOC class record once again to now stand at 58.74 seconds. All drivers were under their handicaps showing how competitive the championship has become.


Saloons was won by Simon Braithwaite (Handicap) and by Steve Louch (Scratch) with a very respectable time in the family Scimitar shared with father John. Steve Holder was the only casualty with a blown core plug in his mini's engine on the final run.


Sportscars was won by Mike Henney with a time well under his estimated handicap. This result takes Mike to the series overall lead from Steve Phennah . John Newton was fastest sportscar on scratch times in the well driven TVR.
