SCOT­LAND’S OLD­EST RACE VENUE RE­VIVAL

Practical Classics (UK) - - CLASSIC WORLD -

Bo’ness res­onated to the sound of mo­tor­sport dur­ing the first week­end of Septem­ber for the Re­vival Fes­ti­val. It saw clas­sic cars of all types opt to take part in ei­ther a laid-back road run or the more com­pet­i­tive reg­u­lar­ity stages of the Bo’ness Saltire Tro­phy. Record num­bers of clas­sic fans con­verged on Bo’ness from all over the UK. They brought three hun­dred clas­sic cars for dis­plays from over one hun­dred car clubs. On the hill climb, more than one

hun­dred rac­ing cars threaded their way along the track. First used in 1932, the venue on the Kin­neil Es­tate at­tracted the likes of Jim Clark and Sir Jackie Ste­wart. Mo­tor­sport ended there in 1966 but eleven years ago, a team of vol­un­teers brought mo­tor rac­ing back to Bo’ness.
