MG Car Club of South Australia Multi Club 1 Hillclimb April 30 th 2017 A fter a couple of weeks of rain on and off, the weather decided to give us a good day for racing up a hill. The sun managed to poke its head out through the clouds enough to warm the track up and allow for some good times. A massive field of 128 cars entered and things ran pretty smoothly all day with only a few stoppages and we all ended up with 5 runs for the day. There were 4 Mg club members entered for the day, John Davies once again out in the Lancer Evo and ended up with the second quickest time overall. Craig Ruediger was back with the Ford XA GT (definitely the biggest and heavi- est car in the field), Alan Cardnell in the MGB was doing better each run trying different things out improving on his times as the day went on. And I was again enjoying the MGZS180 having a great battle between a Lotus Exige Cup car in my class and also with Craig in the big v8. I managed to finish 3 rd in my class out of 12 cars , all road registered classes were quite large. Craig did a fantastic job and finished second in his class against some pretty quick cars. Tim Edmonds once again volunteered his services to Scrutineer although he was finding it tough not competing as we all do when we come to watch, we also had a visit from Mike and Jan Green- wood who popped in to check out the racing. Overall a great day of racing with no one having any issues and driving home safely. See you all with your helmets on at the next event .
