Recently SafetyCope sponsored a race car in the British Hill Climb Championship, presented by Avon Tyres, and the BHC Cup, presented by Footman James, came to Gurston Down Speed Hill Climb. With drivers Stephen Moore and Izzie Lawrence, driving a Mitsubishi Evo RS.
The new four-wheel-drive class had two Gurston regulars entered on Saturday and three on Sunday. Simon Neve in the Mitsubishi was dominant on Saturday finishing well ahead of the Audi TT of Tony Mullis. Simon finished on 35.96s, Tony on 40.17s.
On Sunday Izzy Lawrence in her Mitsubishi Evo snatched the win from Simon. Simon had the better first timed run but Izzy pulled a super performance on the second to take the win from Simon.
Stephen Moore in the Mitsubishi Evo RS put in superb performances on both days, dominating the class and leaving the real fight for second. Mark Walker in his Porsche Cayman had a good margin in second on Saturday but Sunday was completely different. Mark was third after the first timed run to Jonathan Williamson in the Porsche 911. Both drivers improved their times but Mark’s ended with 36.59s and Jonathan’s 36.64s, giving Mark second and Jonathan third.
