With planning now well underway for the 2019 Bo’ness Revival the first major decision for the Classic side of the event has been confirmed. Following a meeting with the Jim Clark Trust he 2019 Revival Classic Road Tour, to be named the ‘Jim Clark Road Tour’ shall depart from the Bo’ness and Kinneil Railway Station in the town centre and head for the newly refurbished Jim Clark museum in Duns. Over the next few months Alisdaire Lockhart shall be hard at work plotting an interesting route through some of Scotland’s finest scenery, he has quite a task in hand to equal or better his route for the 2018 Road Tour, which was universally acclaimed by all who took part. Also under planning is the Bo’ness Saltire Trophy, a competitive MSA sanctioned Historic Rally / Production Car Autotest event, organised by Graham Couser and the Saltire Rally Club. There are a number of logistical problems to overcome but the plan is for the BST to also head for Duns and hopefully take in a number of Jim Clark related venues en route.

For the Hillclimb side of the event the provisional entry list for the Jim Clark Class has a possible fourteen entries already, which currently includes, amongst others, a Porsche 356, Lotus Elans, Lotus 23s, Jaguar D-Types, Triumph TR3s a Goggomobil and DKW. The class is open to the types of cars driven by Jim Clark during his career so the thought of a Ford Galaxie or Lotus Cortinas tackling the tricky Bo’ness course is a mouth-watering thought for any motor sport or classic car enthusiast. Below is the full list of eligible cars.
