Motor Sport News - - Historics -

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.”
