Starting at the beginning, can anybody say what happened at the first meeting?
R.A.C. Permit for hill Climb
The R.A.C. competitions
committee has granted The
Severn Valley Motor Club a
permit to hold its first com-
petitive event at Loton Park,
near Shrewsbury, on July 2. The
hill climb will be formally
opened by Sir Michael Layton, (sic)
the owner of Loton Park.
Birmingham Daily Post, Monday 20 June 1960, Page 4
The owner referred to was Michael John Bryan Leighton.
There was also an event scheduled for 3 September 1960, Severn Valley M.C.
"The first event will be a
members' testing day on April
23, followed by a similar event
on July 2. The first competitive
event will be on September 3."
Birmingham Daily Post, Monday 18 January 1960
Some confusion here. Any history welcome.
