Was Ken Miles here on a motorcycle in 1948? About ten miles from Worcester?
"There is also news of another
new track which is to be used
in the form of a "nursury"
for the members of the Sunbac
Club, who consider themselves
potential British hill climb
champions. This track is an
uphill kilometre of metalled
road on the Winnings Estate,
Colwall, near Malvern, and on
July 10, 50 members of the
Sunbac Club will compete over
its tarred surface for cups and
It is considered by Sunbac
officials that the track will
provide an opportunity for
younger drivers to learn the
art of racing driving."
Coventry Evening Telegraph, Friday 2 July 1948
S.U.N.B.A.C. SPEED HILL-CLIMB
This experimental event, over a one-
kilometre course near Malvern, attracted
40 entries. J. L. Evans (blown Austin
Seven) won his class from Cracknell's
Ford-engined Austin and Oliver's un-
blown Austin, the times being 70.8, 78.0
and 78.8., respectively. K. Rawlings
won the next class, clocking 65.2 sec.
in his 1,172-c.c. Rawlings-Special and
beating Gibbs' Riley, which took 66.8
sec. and Goodall's Morgan 4/4, which
needed 68.2 sec. The final car class was
won by Mansell's Allard-Special, in
62.2 sec., from May's Ford V8, 62.3 sec.,
and Delingpole's H.R.G., 63.4 sec. F.t.d.
went to a B.S.A. motor-cycle, in 60.4 sec.
The hill has great possibilities.
