2016 Jim Clark Award
The Bo'ness Revival Committee were very proud to be awarded the 2016 Jim Clark Award - sponsored by Ford and chosen by the Association of Scottish Motoring Writers.
The award is for our significant contribution to Scottish Motorsport. This is the first time the award has been presented to a club; previous recipients have include Sir Jackie Steward, David Coulthard, Alan McNish, John Cleland, Colin McRae plus a host of others well known in motorsport circles.
An enormous amount of work has gone into organising and developing the Bo'ness Hill Climb over the past nine years. Kenny Baird and Bill Drysdale were proud to accept the award on behalf of everyone who has been involved at Bo'ness past and present.
“On behalf of the Bo’ness Hill Climb Revival committee, we are honored to receive the prestigious Jim Clark Award,” said Kenny Baird, chairman. “We are extremely proud of Scotland’s contribution to motor racing and it is very satisfying to see our hard work recognised in this way and we hope to build on this success in future years.”
This year we are changing the track layout by adding a new corner and finishing straight. The public car park will now be relocated to the area behind Kinneil House and spectators will no longer have to cross the track to enter the venue. This will result in much smoother running of the meeting with less delays and more smiles from spectators and drivers alike!
We are also moving the location of the classic car show to allow more cars to be displayed. details of the classic car show can be found here:

The Bo’ness Dinner
A new feature for Bo’ness in 2016 is the addition of a Saturday night dinner at the Macdonald Inchyra Hotel. The dinner will be open to Hillclimb competitors and Motoring Heritage entrants with the intention of bringing together everyone involved with Bo’ness at an informal social event. Numbers for attending the dinner are limited so attendance will be on a purely first come first served basis. The cost of the dinner is £32.00 per person which is to be paid together with the entry fee to the Hillclimb.
