After Jersey it was time for the BIG one....!

26th July 2012

Decide for yourself if you think I am biased (as a true Guern)!
After the very successful Jersey rounds of the Avon Tyres MSA National Hill Climb Championship the road-show headed for the sunny shores of Guernsey.
Anticipation was high after Jos Goodyear re-wrote the record book with some stunning racing whilst at Bouley Bay.
A large crowd of spectators were eager to see if the Guernsey drivers could reproduce their superb performances in Jersey that saw three Guernsey lads qualify for the Top Twelve run-offs.
Nobody was dissapointed.
Repeating their successes in Jersey the 'Donkey's' had a good representation in the run-offs with Darren Warwick, Nick Saunders, Geoff and Chris Guille all flying the flag.

Top honours must go, once again, to Jos Goodyear driving his G.W.R. Raptor Extreme who took another all time record. This time on Le Val des Terres.
I noted whilst watching Jos from various positions on the hill that the Raptor was indeed noticably more rapid through the 'bendy bits'. I think this chassis will be high on a few drivers wish list as, amazingly, I got the impression that there was still a bit more to come! Watch this space.
I have now added new picture Galleries featuring all the action form the Guernsey rounds of the National Hill Climb Championship.
