New venue for 2007 !

Post by stylussprinter »

Just heard today from David Penn aka 'DP' that the ACSMC hill climb championship will go to GURSTON DOWN in 2007 for one of it's rounds :D :D

Apparently it will be on 15th July 2007 unless any changes crop up. I'll definately enter that one . For those who haven't spectated there it's a ' must do thing ' for 2007. Better still , enter your car . Simply join the ACSMC Championship Sprint and or hillclimb then you'll get an invitation automatically.Cost of ACSMC is £7 for the hillclimb champ'p and £12 for the sprint champ'p . Then entry fees vary in cost between £55 for N.Weald sprint --- £120 for Goodwood plus everything inbetween . Gurston's usually £70 .

The venue is stunning and a great spectator feast. You can see the cars everywhere , start line , hollow , karousel/ashes . Single seaters , sports racers , saloons plus the normal crop of kit cars. Entry to spectate is £8 . There's a restaurant plus bar and access to the pits is free.

It's a very specialised sport as the track is very narrow with ' NO ' run off so learning has to be slow/cheap or fast/expensive depending on how many repairs you can afford :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: The times that these guys do is awesome i.e. kits do 32 sec's to 36 sec's , normally on slicks/around 300bhp , developed just for the hills. My times in comparison have been 42.16 sec's in 2002 and 39.85 sec's in 2004 which is the last time I got an entry :oops:

Maybe crack 37 sec's in 2007 :?:

I know exactly how that felt . When mine was in build mode , Andy Bailey took me out in his blue SBD beastie :!: It served to make me get a move on to finish mine. He drove all the way from his house up to mine , it's first outing I think :?:

I'll jog everybody around June 2007 re - GURSTON :D :D :D

Rob.(really missing the Stylus now events all finished)
