The Tony Marsh Memorial Weekend celebrates, Tony Marsh. Tony was a multiple British Hill Climb Champion and instrumental in the creation of Gurston Down as it is today. He designed the course and helped with the construction. The impact of his work and dedication to Gurston Down can not be underestimated. Without Tony, we would not have a fast and twisty, award-winning hill climb.

The Tony Marsh Memorial Award was presented to the club by Simon and Peter, two of Tony’s sons. It can only be won this weekend. Last year’s winner was Steve Holland, pictured above. The Tony Marsh Memorial Award is given to the BARC SW Championship Competitor who breaks their class record or comes nearest to it during the event.
