The bike and car Hill Climb at Oliver’s Mount on 17th August 2014, turned out to be one of the best of the season. There was a really good turnout of officials and marshals and everything went according to plan, without any major incidents.
The highlight of the weekend was Warwick Davies who came along with a television production team and his family, to sample the sport and experience the paddock atmosphere. Warwick is currently making a television series of events he has attended, and this will be featured in one of them. During the lunch break, Warwick was driven up the hill at a reasonable speed, with one of the car competitors, Geoff Peters. On returning to the paddock we managed to push Warwick’s eyes back in as he said it was one of the most frightening experiences he’d ever had!!
Before the timed runs after lunch, Warwick took a leisurely ride up the hill with his family in his blue VW Campervan before leaving the venue for his next appointment.
There was a good entry and selection of cars, the many spectators seemed to enjoy themselves observing in the paddock and chatting to the riders and drivers.
We had a good selection of vehicles ranging from the spectacular 1913 Theophile Schneider at a whopping 10,000cc, lots of different sports cars and a good selection of single seaters.As you will see from the results the weather was kind with reasonable driving conditions all day.
The bikes also proved spectacular with everything from 125ccs to superbikes and three wheelers.
