With just 3-months to go to the Revival and 8-weeks to the final closing date for entry to the Bo’ness Classic it is good time for an update as to the current situation.
Club and Individual entries are now coming in at a steady rate so if you are considering entering the Classic please do not hold off for too long, as when the available spaces are filled the entry list shall be closed, even if that is prior to the noted closing date. We are on target to meet our maximum number of entrants, which is 400-cars in the Showfield on Sunday 3rd of September.
The Bo’ness Classic is a full weekend event, starting off on Saturday morning when the Bo’ness to Balmaha Road Run and Bo’ness Saltire Trophy depart from Bo’ness town centre from around 10.00. The Road Run is a gentle convoy type drive whereas the Saltire Trophy shall be an MSA sanctioned event, but without the requirement for a competition licence. The Trophy shall consist of a Road Book with Code Boards and other references to identify, Autotest type competitons and Regularity sections, it all promises to be an interesting concept with a wide range of competing cars spanning almost a century of motoring. Plans are well advanced for road closures in the town and when the expected 60 or so cars have departed there will be a Street Fayre event in the town centre. Due to Saturday being an active awayday there will not be as many cars on display in the Showfield at the Hillclimb track as there will be on Sunday, so please bear this in mind if you are specifically visiting the Classic on Saturday.
Sunday will be a busy day with the focus on the Arena which will see action by way of the ‘Carkhana’ competition, plus interviews and presentations all under the control of our knowledgeable MC’s. An interesting feature will be the final element of the Bo’ness Saltire Trophy, a Regularity drive up the Hillclimb track during the Hillclimb lunchbreak, which shall see some unlikely cars tackle the Bo’ness hill. There will be a wide array of cars on display on the various club stands, ranging from a Triumph TR3S which has competed at Le Mans on the TR Register stand, to the Jaguar Heritage Trust Jaguar XJ220 on the Jaguar Drivers Club Stand. Both the TR Register and Jaguar Drivers Club are involved with the Bo’ness Revival Classic in that they are sponsoring various activities and are hosting their Scottish national events under the umbrella of the Revival Classic. All of the trophies for the Bo’ness Revival Classic are generously being supplied by the TR Register and JDC and in addition both clubs are sponsoring their respective classes in the Revival Hillclimb..
The Bo’ness Revival is a truly unique event with the Bo’ness Hillclimb and the Bo’ness Classic running side by side and providing a range of interest for spectators and entrants alike.
