Wigmore CC Hill Climb

As I have said often enough. "Nothing Happens Unless One Makes it Happpen". When I got this Show on the Road way way back in 1976 I was told by those in the know that I would be wasting my time. The Kent CA Hill Climb had recently been taken off the Calendar because of lack of entries.

There have been highs and lows but in the main I reckon it has been well worth the effort. An entry of 74 has been the best and last year saw 66 riders on the card. Only bettered on 3 previous occasions. Nationally there are around three dozen such events on the Calendar each October and in terms of entries in recent years this event has been about the 6th best supported. My target is always 60. Win some lose some.

To celebrate the 25th and 30th year an added attraction had been a Trad Jazz Band playing for 2 hours in our HQ field on the summit of the North Downs. And so for the 35th year it will be the same again. Southville Stompers Dixieland Jazz Band will be there to play from around 9-30am.

Since moving to Lincolnshire 10 years ago I have travelled down to Kent to continue to run "My Baby". This year will be my last, as I will be finally handing it over. For sure I will miss it. My wish now is to bow out with a bumper entry. Joke
