Boness Hill climb Revival

80th Anniversary Barbeque

On Monday 23rd June we held a small gathering of cars, motorcycles and members in the paddock at Kinneil to celebrate 80 glorious years of motorsport at Bo’ness. The weather was glorious and a beautiful warm summer evening was enjoyed by around seventy members.
- Rob Bremner moving the Connaught There were about twenty cars and motorcycles on display including:

Rob Bremner’s Grand Prix Connaught, Malcolm Wishart’s Cooper FJ,
Stephen Smith’s pretty Austin Special
Douglas Turner’s AJS Big Port motorcycle.

Excellent food was provided by our sponsor Andy Hutchison who set up a fantastic covered eating area complete with tables and chair for members to enjoy a seat in the sun while they ate the BBQ food plus various desserts and wonderful cup-cakes. We are very grateful to Andy for providing such a fine spread andprofessional service.

We are also grateful to Tim MacKay for his additional sponsorship. Many thanks to both for helping to make the evening a success.

It is very likely that we will repeat the evening next year and we may well make this an annual treat for our members.

Getting involved

Making an event like the Bo'ness Hill climb such a success, is in part down to the Excellent team of marshals. Without these volunteers the event would simple not run.

Lotus success at Jim Clark 50th Anniversary Meeting

The 50th Anniversary of Jim Clark's first World Championship formed part of the celebrations at the 6th Bo'ness Hill Climb Revival. It was particularly fitting therefore that a Lotus won FTD on both days.

The 6th Revival Meeting was our most successful yet with showery weather on the Saturday, but a sunny Sunday which saw spectators flooding into Kinneil Estate. In addition to the excellent entry of competition cars and the Classic Car Show they enjoyed a flypast by a Spitfire and Hurricane of the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.
