News | Published:

Ready to drop the flag for the last event of the year, Paul Edwards and Matthew Everington from Sportscarhire of Shrewsbury who will be attending the Season Finale speed hill climb meeting at Loton Park, Alberbury, near Shrewsbury this weekend.

The specialist car hire firm will be taking along the very latest McLaren 570S model in which one lucky motor sport marshal will have a thrilling passenger ride up the track. The 550bhp supercar is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.8 litre V8 engine and has a top speed of over 200 mph!

Martyn Silcox, secretary of event organisers Hagley Car Club, said: "Marshals are an essential part of any motor sport event including F1 and we are delighted that Paul and his team are bringing this fantastic car along to the big British Championship meeting this weekend and we will be rewarding one lucky marshal, whose name is drawn from a hat, to have the ride of a lifetime.

"Marshals are all volunteers and we are fortunate to have a really professional regular team here at Loton Park. They stand out in all weathers to ensure the safety of both competitors and spectators alike and are trained to react to any incidents, so as a club we are extremely grateful for their efforts."

Paul Edwards, added: "As a speed hill climb competitor myself I am fully aware of the dedication of these volunteer marshals so we are pleased to offer a ride in this latest example of our sports car hire fleet, which also includes an Aston Martin, Porsche Cayman, Lamborghini, Ford Mustang and Alfa Romeo 4C, a couple of which will be on display at the weekend."

Ludlow driver Scott Moran has already clinched his 6th British Championship this year and will be competing, but remaining top ten places and other championship titles are still up for grabs so competition amongst the wide variety of sports, saloons, classics and racing cars is expected to be fierce.

Practice and qualifying takes place on Saturday with timed competition runs in programme order on Sunday, including a run-off for the fastest 12 cars after both the morning and afternoon sessions.
