Event organisers Hagley Car Club have reported a full entry for both days of the speed hill climb meetings at Loton park, near Shrewsbury. A wide variety of sports, classic and racing cars will tackle the challenging tight and twisty uphill tarmac course through the stately home’s deer park. A special class for historic rally cars will see a battle between several Austin Minis, a Lotus Elan and a Ford Corina GT, which always provides great spectator interest, while there are 40 entries each day for competitors in the Loton Park Championship.
Worcester driver Tina Hawkes came very close to taking the record last year and will be in attendance with her Force PC racing car to ensure close competition. Local entrants include Mark Laws of Much Wenlock in a Mini Cooper Works, Brian Marshall of Shrewsbury in a Porsche 944 Turbo, Richard Thorne of Ludlow in a Jamun M90, Tony Adams of Bridgnorth in a Lotus Elise, Lindsay Summers of Tenbury Wells in a DJ Firehawk, Sean Toms of Shrewsbury in a Subaru Impreza, Tim Higgins of Oswestry in a Westfield, Andrew Collins of Dorrington in a Rover Metro and Trevor Lacey of Shifnal in a Renault Clio. The action starts at 9am on Saturday and Sunday with two practice and qualifying runs each morning, followed by two timed competition runs each afternoon. Loton Park is situated in the village of Alberbury, near Shrewsbury and further details can be found at the club’s website www.hdlcc.com
