|Shelsley Walsh 15th August 2009|
Whilst the racing boys were having fun at Brands Hatch the Hill Climb guys were having as much fun at Shelsley Walsh. There were 10 cars and 11 drivers and this week-end must the first time in many a year that three Starides were at the one meeting, the owners/drivers being Jan Nycz, Chris Bird and Darrell Woods. The competition was fierce from the off set as Alistair Dent queued up at the crack of dawn on Saturday (practice day) to be register as one of the first 30 to be able to get a third practice, none of our other 500 guys were so lucky.

Sunday was a glorious day and there were over 200 competitors and hundreds of spectators turned up, the largest crowd since 2005. So the paddock was buzzing with engines revving, people talking and cameras whirling. It was great to see Gerry Goodwin turn up to support our drivers.
