End of championships and the season at Loton Park
The final Loton Park meeting of the season saw us hosting the last rounds of the British, Leaders and Midland hill climb championships and in all three, everything was still to play for with none of them yet decided. Once again, however, the weather was to play a part over the weekend with very mixed conditions on both days.
Will Hall had been in almost unbeatable form throughout the previous weeks. This had put him in a position to beat Trevor Willis for the British championship, but he failed on both scoring rounds when it mattered, leaving Richard Spedding and Wallace Menzies to win rounds 33 and 34. Trevor took second place on the latter and was declared British Hill Climb Champion for the third time. Will did have the consolation of winning the large racing car class ahead of Wallace and Trevor, but that was not what he wanted!
Star of the day was Zach Zammit from Malta in his 1600cc Empire, finishing third in one run-off and sixth in the other and being awarded ‘Man of the Meeting’.
Both the Leaders and Midland championships were being led by Robert Kenrick just ahead of Andy Griffiths but on the day neither won their respective class. This resulted in Robert winning both series, but only by two points in the Leaders after 28 rounds.
