The Words

From Steve Uprichard:

The VSCC heralded the end to the Hill Climb season with the ever popular Loton Park event. Set within the confines of the estate’s picturesque deer park, the 1475 yards course is great challenge for car and machine, and competitors got two practice runs on Saturday and two timed runs towards the competition on Sunday.

A rather depleted entry this year, probably caused by the clash with Goodwood Revival.

Four Three Wheeler Morgans were entered in three different classes. Steve Lister, Iain Stewart, Alistair Rew and Pete Enticknap all competed in their Super Aero Morgans. The Enticknap line-up was completed by Hannah sharing a drive with Charlie Martin in the RIP Special, a J.A.P. powered Morgan derivative, and Ben driving the family’s GN in Class 13 alongside dad Pete.

Steve Lister claimed 2nd Overall and 2nd Vintage in Class 2. Iain Stewart came 2nd Vintage in Class 14. Alistair Rew was 5th in Class 14, sandwiched between Hannah Enticknap in the RIP Special and Phil Dobbin in the Morgan GN Salome.

The Photos

Super photos from our club photographer Dennis Rushton and Andy Hadfield. It’s interesting to see the different lines taken at corners, especially at Triangle. Triangle’s tricky because it’s at the bottom of a downhill section (on a hillclimb!) and many competitors overestimate their car’s braking ability. A good place to spectate.
