A grandstand view of all the action...

22nd July 2014

Spectators were treated to a Grandstand view of the spectacular Avon Tyres - TTC Group National Hillclimb Championship when it arrived in Guernsey for the weekend.

Rounds nineteen and twenty were completed in the most extraordinary, changeable weather conditions. Luckily the worst was thrown at us in the morning which allowed time for the summer sun to go to work on drying out the track.

Perhaps the perfect tarmac surface never had time to dry under the mid-hill corners but that was no dampener on the racing and by the top corners the competitors were able to push as hard as ever.

This was where the specially built raised seating area near the finish line offered a fantastic view for the lucky ones who could find a spare seat.

The added benefit was that the packed crowd played off each other to raise the level of excitement making the applause louder than I can remember for any previous Hillclimb.

Lets hope the 'stadium' returns....

I've now completed the edit for both National Hillclimbs with the final updates showing the action from Le Val des Terres in Guernsey now online.
