A Day Of two Halves

30th September 2011
Loton Park last weekend really was a proper hill climb: the sort of meeting you won't forget in a long time.

The weather in the morning was pretty dismal but the action on the track was full-on. As soon as we reached Top-12 runoff time, I just knew Roger Moran was the man to beat. This guy is the Michael Schumacher of the hill climb world. If there's a wet track, Roger is the man.

Given the morning's conditions, you wouldn't have put your shirt on a new hill record but Scott, ever the one for a drama, pulled it off with the final run of the Loton season.

Freakishly, we concluded proceedings by 4.00 PM - another record, I'd think. Great to see a huge number of people hanging on for the prize-giving afterwards.

I'd just like to say a big thanks to the officials of Loton for allowing me access to their smashing hill and for making me feel so at home. See you all again next year.
