Introduction to the Championship -
The Wiscombe Park Hillclimb Championship is sponsored by Tillicoultry Quarries and it is open to regular competitors from all classes. It has a scoring system which rewards outstanding performance in each class - so the smallest road saloon can compete against the fastest single-seater.
All events at Wiscombe which are open to 'B licence' holders are included in the championship - nine in total and the scores for the best six rounds count.
Other championships also include events at Wiscombe and it is possible for a competitor to enter more than one championship at the same time.
The Championship regulations for 2023 are now available - you can download a copy and an application form here
The final round of the eleven round Tillicoultry Quarries Wiscombe Park Championship was held on Sunday 24th September at the Manor Farm event. With the drivers only allowed to count their seven best results, it comes down to very fine margins in the final calculations. During the last 24 hours, our Championship Co-ordinator, George Koopman, has completed the calculations, and we can name our new Champion.
And it is congratulations to Paul Reynolds! Paul moved in to the Championship lead after the MG Car Club event when he set a new Class C4 Record - 38.54s
In the runner up spot, it is 2022 Champion and a five times winner, Ian Ingleheart, in his Westfield SE. Ian also set a new Class Record in B3 at the MG Car Club event - 39.94s
And into a third place finish, we congratulate Ed Hollier who has had an incredible season in his Force HC. He has set numerous FTD's through the season and set a new Class E1 and ASWMC Record at the MG Car Club event - 35.57s.
It has been another exceptional year of competition at Wiscombe Park, and we say a big “thank you” to all those drivers who have given us so much entertainment in 2023 – more of the same please in 2024!
A special “thank you”, also, to our series sponsor, Tillicoultry Quarries and Wallace Menzies, and to Championship Co-ordinator, George Koopman.
