Willis takes hill record at Craigantlet

Aylesbury-based hillclimb racer Trevor willis enjoyed a successful weekend at Craigantlet hill in Northern Ireland, taking another hill record to extend his lead in the Avon Tyres MSA British Hillclimb Championship.
Following on from his success at Wiscombe Park in July, when he made the most of erstwhile Championship leader Scott Moran's absence to take two run-off victories and a hill record, Willis secired two further run-off wins at the Ulster hill to increase his lead over Moran, who was once again absent, to 27 points.
Although Willis was not the quickest qualifier for the first run-off, losing out to Scotsman Wallace Menzies, Willis re-established his authority as the run-offs got underway, eclipsing Menzies' best efforts by around a quarter of a second to secure another victory and valuable ten championship points.
The quickest qualifier for the second and final run-off of the Craigantlet weekend, Willis stormed the hill in his Powertec engined OMS 25 in a time of 39.56 seconds to take a commanding run-off victory and his second hill record in as many weeks.
Rounds 25 and 26 of the Avon Tyres MSA British Hillclimb Championship will take place at Shelsley Walsh, Worcestershire on August 18 and 19.
