Press Release from the Vintage Sports car Club

VSCC Speed Hill Climb


The Vintage Sports-Car Club will return to the Shropshire for the Loton Park Hill Climb on Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 September for an exciting weekend of Vintage Motorsport, featuring two Rounds of their 2018 Speed Championship.

In contrast to last year’s two-day event, spectators can look forward to over 200 cars and drivers tackling the Hill over the weekend with Round 7 of the Speed Championship taking place on Saturday, and Round 8 on Sunday.

Amongst the leading competitors will be last year’s Fastest Time of the Day champion Julian Grimwade who achieved an excellent timed run of 63.95 seconds in his 1934 Single Seat Frazer Nash. Challenging Grimwade will be Chris Williams in his impressive 1929 Napier Bentley; Thomas Richardson in his beautiful 1925 GN Gipsy; and Mark Walker in his GN Thunderbug, who holds the Vintage Class Record at Loton Park with a timed run of 62.29 seconds in his Parker GN. All are expected amongst the top performers in Class 16.

There will no doubt be many ‘battles’ across all of the VSCC Classes. The nippy Austin 7 ‘The Toy’ will be campaigned over the weekend by father-daughter duo David Furnell and Claire Furnell-Williams, and the Edwardian Class will showcase the 1917 Hudson Super Six Racer driven by Ian Balmforth. The entry list showcases a number of fantastic marques and models from the Vintage era, including Rileys, Alvises, Frazer Nashes, and more.

The action starts at 0830hrs on Saturday and 0930hrs on Sunday, with competitive runs starting in the afternoon of each day. General public tickets are available on the gate starting at £12 per day. Children under 16 years have free entry.
