CURRENT ISSUE - Speedscene 189 June/July 2016

With Scott Moran back at the top of the British Hillclimb Championship leaderboard Speedscene 189 features the former Champion aboard his Gould GR61X at Craigantlet.

With the season fully underway this issue contains BHC reports from Craigantlet, Harewood, Shelsley, Loton and Doune, BSC rounds from Snetterton and Anglesey along with SBD HSA events at Werrington, Snetterton, Pembrey, Barbon, Curborough, Anglesey and Prescott.

Between the beams includes reports from the Midland rounds at Loton and Prescott together with Crystal Palace, Cultra and a round up from the NSCC Championship.

The subject for this issue's 'Introducing...........' feature is regular BHC competitor, Paul Haimes while Graham Blackwell reports on both his move to single seaters and his slightly unusual choice of car - the Mygale M13. Chris Bennett begins a series of articles documenting the development of a new hillclimb car - the Force TA with a look at how the tub was conceived and built by S.P.A. Design.

There is a moving account of the life and times of the late Simon McKinley while Charlie Martin, Andrew Dinner and Clive Wooster all share their varied and interesting experiences so far this season.

The proposals for a new 'Standard Class' get covered in a number of articles as well as a dedicated review of how it might work out in practice.

The issue concludes with the usual pieces from the Paddock Prowler, Paul Parker and, finally, Jerry Sturman who suggests that Hillclimbing provides one of the finest spectacles in Motorsport.
