In the ten year history of the Bridge Tyres and Wheels Wiscombe Park Hill Climb championship it has taken until this year for the champion to successfully defend his crown.

It is Lyme Regis driver Craig Moore who has achieved this feat but as the season came to a climax he came under pressure from Ottery St Mary driver Ed Hollier.

Having made some set-up changes to the suspension of the Suzuki Hayabusa powered racer in July, Hollier had a strong second half to the season reducing the points deficit.

However, he failed to to usurp Moore’s advantage finally taking the runner-up slot a mere 0.77 of a point in arrears of Moore and his two litre Ford Cortina.

In securing second place Ed Hollier received The Eric Moxom Memorial Trophy, a replica and a cheque for £100 at an awards presentation evening staged at Wiscombe House where one hundred guests celebrated his success.
