Wallace Menzies continued his reign in the Motorsport UK British Hillclimb Championship presented by Avon Tyres this year after wrapping up a fourth consecutive title at Prescott at the start of the month (September 2/3).
Having been the benchmark in the prestigious series over the course of the last three seasons, the Gould GR59M driver third and fourth place run-off finishes at the Gloucestershire venue to clinch the coveted crown with a round to spare.
Menzies’ championship triumph also saw him join a very elite club too as he became the first person since Ken Wharton in 1951 to 1954 to win the title four years on the bounce.
Commenting on his title success, Menzies said: “You can’t win the Championship in a weekend, but you can definitely lose it in a weekend. We had to hang onto Scott’s shirt tails these last two weekends, just to make sure.
“To win one British Hillclimb Championship title was amazing and fantastic; so this will take some time to sink in.”
The British Hillclimb Championship now moves onto its final round, which takes place at Loton Park in Shropshire, over the weekend of the 23/24 September.
