Gurston Down Speed Hill Climb hosted a weekend of record breaking motorsport.

The BMTR Midland Hill Climb Championship and the TTC Group Top Ten Challenge were the visiting championship and we also ran a round of the Meadens Skoda Championship and the Cavendish Ships Store Top Ten and Gurston’s first Formula Ford Festival!

Fastest Time of the Day (27.13s) and both Run-off went to Alistair Crawford and is Gould GR55.


A number of records were broken:

Mark Crookall, the previous record holder in the MX5 Class reduced the Class Record to 41.01s.


Stephen Moore’s first timed run in his Mitsubishi Evo, broke the Road Going Series Production Car Class over 2000cc reducing it to 33.31s!


Simon Purcell in his super fast Lotus Exige broke the record he set last meeting in the Modified Limited Production Marque Sports Cars over 2000 cc. It now stands at 33.19s!


Simon McBeath in his Swift SC92F won the Formula Ford Class with a record breaking 36.30s. The Formula Ford Festival was amazing, the first eight cars were separated by less than one second!


Nic Mann and the Mannic Beattie beat his own Sports Libre over 2000cc record with a 27.26s which was also second fastest time of the day!


A full report of the meeting will be released later this week.
