As previously published in the provisional 2024 Championship Calendar the July 7th. date at Prescott clashed with the British Championship at Harewood.
Therefore our rounds at Prescott are now on Sunday 14th. July and a revised Calendar for 2024 is on the website.
Thoughts and facts after Loton Park :
All scores now calculated and published with 7 days to query / protest.
Johnathen Varley is Champion this year after years of trying and being beaten on the bonus scores last year, ahead of Rodney Eyles and Andy Tippett, Steve Garner and Caroline Ryder fifth – following her Formula Ford Van Dieman being declared legal – queried by a fellow competitor !
Stuart Bickley and his father David joined us this year and Stuart wins Class I in his new Force and being placed in sixth overall with Richard Price ahead of a late charging Dave Tatham with Rob Wilson and Ray Lohr completing the top ten.
Tom Weaver finished 12th, behind last years champion Stephen Moore and Tom wins the Under 25 awards from Aaron Colbourne - in his first season of racing.
Rodney Eyles led the Over 60s all year in his Alfa Romeo from Robert Lancaster-Gaye with Allan Warburton claiming third at the last event from Steve Garner.
Scott came through to win the ‘Top Ten Challenge’ from Matthew Ryder, Alex Summers, Will Hall and Wallace Menzies, who chose to miss Loton Park. In the final run of the season Scott almost went out in the biggest way possible.
Scott has decided to ‘retire’ from the big racing car class after over 20 years carrying a number in the BHC and winning 6 championships but says he will drive occasionally in a saloon or in a guest drive. I will publish facts from Rich Danby covering Scott’s career and figures/ results later this week.
With my hands up – the Prescott date in July is changing so that it doesn’t clash with Harewood – more soon.
Now to look forward to next year – April will soon come around.

Updates for the Midland Hill Climb Championship this year ahead of the final two rounds at Loton Park :
Still all to play for in the Championship for the BMTR Motorsport Tyres Trophy.
Rodney Eyles leads by one point from Johnathen Varley with the last 2 rounds of the MHCC this weekend.
With dropped scores now in play – best 14 scores to count from 18 rounds, the advantage is with Johnathen with 4 bonus points to the 2 scored by Rodney – given for breaking a class record during the season.
Rodney can only add to his 128 points by breaking the class record whilst Johnathen can gain 3 more points to his 127 by winning his class on either of the rounds this weekend.
Several classes are also still to be decided as are many overall and class places and also in the Wynn Developments ‘Top Ten Challenge’ which is being led by Scott Moran on 89 points from Wallace Menzies and Matthew Ryder equal on 74 points and Alex Summers on 71..
