Dear Members

After a great deal of discussion with the committee, it’s with regret I have to tell you we have decided to postpone the 2022 Bo’ness Revival at Kinneil House. This very tough decision has been made in light of steeply rising costs for all of the services required to turn the estate into a live motorsport venue for the Revival. These increases simply make it unsustainable to continue with the event this year.

The committee members and myself will be at the April Breakfast Meeting on Sunday 3 April at the Park Bistro, Linlithgow to answer your questions and further explain the situation. We look forward to seeing you there.

I’d also like to thank all of you for you ongoing support through the past two years that have been so difficult for many of you. Anyone who would like to defer their BHCR membership from 2022 to 2023 is welcome to do so and please contact me on: alisdair@bonessrevival.co.uk. I’d also like to thank our sponsor Cask 88 for their ongoing support for the Bo’ness Revival.

While it is very disappointing to make this decision about the Revival at Bo’ness, we are working on other events. This includes the Doune Historic hillclimb on 21-22 May where BHCR will be supporting the event. This is a great opportunity to compete on one of the most challenging and highly regarded hillclimbs in the UK in a classics-only event. If you are not ready to compete, there is also the showfield being organised by BHCR where you can park your classic car. Again, please contact me if you’re interested in this.

We are also looking to run an event at Forrestburn later in the year in conjunction with our friends at the Monklands Sporting Car Club. When we have firmer details of this, we will let you know and invite entries.

Thank you again for all of your support and enthusiasm for the Bo’ness Revival, and I look forward to seeing you at the Breakfast Meeting on 3 April.

Warmest regards,

Alisdair

2022 Bo’ness Revival date confirmed

The 2022 Bo’ness Revival will take place on 3-4 September. This has been confirmed by the Falkirk Community Trust, who have been very helpful in arranging the date.
This is the now-familiar first weekend slot in September and we’re looking forward to welcoming back hillclimbing to the Kinneil Estate in 2022 after an enforced absence since 2019 due to Covid restrictions.
We’ll keep members up to date on news of the event and Classic car show, and we’re looking forward to 2022 being a great event.
Thanks also to our event sponsor Cask 88 for all their support for the 2022 Bo’ness Revival, and we can’t wait to taste the next event’s limited-edition Bo’ness whisky!

14th Bo’ness revival and results

The 2021 Bo’ness Revival sponsored by Cask 88 crosses the finish line! A huge thank you to everyone who helped make the Revival happen this year, sometimes even when it felt like it was against the odds.
A massive thanks to all of the drivers who entered, without whom there is no Revival, and all of those who support the entrants to let them compete.
As always, we all owe every marshal at Bo’ness and every other motorsport event a huge cheer and thank you because they are the absolute backbone of motorsport. Without them, none of us can race or spectate at the events we love. They’re all too modest to say it or think it, but they are our orange-clad superheroes!
A big thank you to all of the officials, MUK staff, safety and recovery crews who help us run Bo’ness Revival in a safe, efficient way.
Thanks also to all you who came along and spectated – when we started planning the 2021 event we didn’t even know if we’d be allowed there, never mind spectators, so thanks for sticking with us!
We also owe a great, big thank to you everyone at Monklands Sporting Car Club for hosting the 2021 Revival and making us so welcome. Forrestburn is a brilliant track and all of the competitors thoroughly enjoyed themselves. If you’ve not driven there, get yourself entered for an event in 2022!
Lastly, an enormous thank you to everyone at our generous and ever jovial sponsor Cask 88. You are an absolute dream to work with and have been so kind and helpful in the run-up to the Revival and over the weekend. If anyone has still to order their bottle of the Cask 88 Revival whisky, get a move on as they are shifting fast and are sure to be a collector’s item with Colin McLachlan’s superb Moose Austin Seven special on the label!
Thank you one and all. Now, planning for the 2022 Bo’ness Revival begins – see you there!
