Knockagh Hill Climb – Cancellation

Knockagh Hill Climb – Cancellation

It is with sincere regret that the Ulster Automobile Club have made the decision to cancel the 2022 Knockagh Hill Climb, which was due to be the final round of the ANICC Hill Climb Championship & the UAC Club Championship.

This decision was not taken lightly, but due to lack of entries & rising costs this meant that it was not feasible to run the event.

We hope you understand our decision & look forward to seeing you at our next event, the UAC October Sprint on Saturday 8th October at Kirkistown.

A full refund will be given to each entrant, but please be patient as this does take some time to process.

The Club would like to thank all those competitors who had entered & all those that had signed on to marshal and support the Hill Climb.

Once again our sincere apologies.

Yours in Motorsport

Clerk of the Course

Weather or not – Menzies strikes again!!

Wallace Menzies - Fastest driver 'up the Hill' for the past two years

Wallace Menzies clearly demonstrated why he is the current Avon Tyres British Hill Climb Champion by setting the Fastest Time of the Day on the Simon Brien Residential UAC Craigantlet Hill Climb, netting him the News Letter Trophy. (Pic A) His driving skills also resulted in him collecting the Dunlop Trophy (Pic B) for his Class 15 win and taking a ‘clean sweep’ by winning both rounds 3 and 4 of the Avon Tyres British Hill Climb Championship at the weekend. Nichola, Wallace’s wife received the Noble Trophy for the second year in a row as the fastest lady up the Hill. (Pics C&D) Congratulations to them both!

The battle for the overall win was intense as the rain continued to fall throughout the day making traction of the start line and on some of the corners a challenging prospect, however the big man from Alloa in his Gould GR59-M set the Fastest Time of the Day (Pic E). Given the conditions, only 5 seconds off the current hill record of 39.12s (jointly held by Scott Moran and Dave Uren) this was a magnificent result. Second place driver Alex Summers in his DJ Firestorm (Pic F) followed by 0.17 seconds who in turn was 0.54 seconds faster than Scott Moran in his Gould GR59J (Pic G).

The Crème de La Crème are on the line at Craigantlet

The Ulster Automobile Club (UAC) are thrilled to announce that when entries closed, the best drivers and machinery in the UK will be coming to Northern Ireland to ‘battle it out on our Hill’. Six months ago entries filled within 6 minutes of entries going live; this year we took a little longer, somewhere in the region of a half a second, the difference between the winner and 2nd place on this amazing event.

We are extremely delighted to continue our relationship with Simon Brien Residential, our generous title sponsor, competitor and avid supporter of motorsport.  Simon commented, “Craigantlet is highly regarded by local competitors and our friends in the British Hill Climb Championship as one of the fastest in the series.
