Another hill record broken

The British Hillclimb Championship round at Prescott yesterday saw the hill record broken 3 times, twice by Wallace Menzies and once by Alex Summers. At the start of the day the record stood at 35.42s, set by Sean Gould in 2019, by the end-of-play yesterday that had tumbled to 34.65s with Menzies last run of the day. There was also a welcome back to Will Hall after missing for 6 months due to a damaging ‘off’ previously in the season. Here is is at Orchard:

I was primarily taking images on behalf of Speedscene magazine and so spent the entire day ‘on the hill’ taking shots of every car just in case they were needed for the forthcoming article. It does therefore tend to result in a long series of record shots – but that’s the downside of working to a brief rather than just taking photographs for pleasure – however the upside is that I get them in print which, for me, is the ultimate aim. Actually I must confess to getting a bit ‘arty’ during the morning and took this shot:
