Dear Members,
It was a very successful hillclimb weekend at Shelsley Walsh last weekend, being very well organised by the Midland Automobile Club. On Saturday Brian Gent in his GT1800 had a bit of an engine misfire which almost brought him to a halt on a slow first timed run. His second run was much better, but not misfire free doing a 43.97 seconds, beating a Formula Ford Nike in his class.

Sunday morning saw Brian trying to cure the misfire, but it kept coming back. So he decided to withdraw from the afternoon runs, as Brian didn't want to cause an incident by breaking down on the course. Two more Gilberns appeared Sunday, with Chris Jones having his first outing in the ex James Goodwyn GT1800. Chris got quicker all day, and finished up with a time of 50.21 seconds.

Chris Dennis was the third Gilbern there, in his Invader Mk 1. It was his first visit to Shelsley, and was also getting quicker throughout the day, finishing up with a time of 48.90 seconds. All the results can be seen on the website www.shelsleywalsh.com
