Hampton seals Lotus-only crown
David Hampton has been confirmed as champion in the Paul Matty Lotus Championship, which concluded its 25th anniversary season at Shelsley Walsh on Sunday.
The hillclimb championship for road-going and racing Lotuses was topped by Hampton’s Formula Atlantic specification Lotus 69 singleseater, while Matty’s wife June claimed the ‘fastest lady’ crown in her Formula Junior 20/22.
The Midlands-based championship started in 1991 and has been continuously supported by Matty’s Lotus sales operation. “Shelsley was the perfect place to wrap up a fantastic 25th anniversary season,” said Matty. “I must applaud all the competitors for making such a wonderfully close yet social championship.”
