The WSCC Speed Series is 21 Years old and to celebrate the occasion they booked the Shelsey Walsh Hill Climb for a fun 'non-timed' day with camping over the weekend. Tricia and I travelled up alone as I had to work until Friday lunchtime and the rest of the Dorset WSCCers were heading off at 10:30. We avoided the M5 and had a very pleasant 3:30 hrs journey on the A37, A38 and then from Gloucester some B roads through the Malvern Hills to Shelsey. After a BBQ and few beers we walked the hill, 300 metres rises in 912 metres oxygen was required on the way up.
The main day was the Saturday and Tricia and I managed to complete around a dozen runs before deciding that the Le Mans Classic was too close and we were starting to speed up. The day closed with an enjoyable 3 course meal, chatting over a few ciders before heading off to bed.
Sunday morning started with hot tea and a bacon roll before heading off back to Yeovil to meet up with family who were over from South Africa.
