Bo’ness picks up top Scot­tish award

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

The Bo’ness Hill Climb Re­vival has won one of Scot­land’s most pres­ti­gious awards, the Jim Clark Me­mo­rial Award for con­tri­bu­tion to mo­tor sport.

Pre­sented by the As­so­ci­a­tion of Scot­tish Motoring Writ­ers, it was pre­vi­ously won by Jackie Ste­wart and David Coulthard. The Bo’ness team earned the ac­co­lade for bring­ing sport back to the old­est per­ma­nent mo­tor sport venue in Scot­land.

The hill was used from 1932 un­til the land was sold in 1966 and Clark com­peted there in his for­ma­tive years. It hosted the in­au­gu­ral round of the Bri­tish Hill­climb Cham­pi­onship in 1947.

The ninth run­ning of the Bo’ness Hill­climb will be on Septem­ber 3/4 and will fea­ture over 200 clas­sic cars.
