It seems appropriate that Shelsley Walsh in displaying 20 BRM's at forthcoming (16th-17th July) Classic Nostalgia meeting, can also claim to he the only course used by the British Hill Climb Championship that has had three drivers in BRM's able to claim points in a top ten run-off.
This happened at Round 10, Shelsley Walsh, 26-08-1962 with following drivers
No 122 Tony Marsh (BRM P48, chassis 484) 1st 38.44"
No 124 Ray Fielding (BRM P48, chassis 486) 5th, 39.95"
No 101 David Good (BRM P48, chassis 484) 6th, 40.85"
The nearest I believe any other course came to that record was the next round (11) held at Prescott, 09-09-1962 when following drivers competed
No 58 Tony Marsh (BRM P48, chassis 484) 1st, 49.67"
No 56 Ray Fielding (BRM P48,, chassis 486) 5th, 50.84"
A third driver was at meeting as a late entry (not shown in programme) that was Lord Doune, who was a guest/second driver in Ray Fielding's car, entered as 56A, he managed a time of 58.72" (9th in class run) but would not have been allowed to run in Championship top ten run-off as not registered to compete.
During the period 1961-1969 a total of seven drivers managed to get in a Championship top ten run off in BRM cars
Tony Marsh, Ray Fielding, David Good, Phil Scragg, Tony Griffiths, Peter Lawson, John Cussins.
