2023 BHC Awards Evening


The great and the good of British Hillclimbing gathered together at the impressive Best Western Plus

Manor Hotel Near Solihull on Saturday 13th January to celebrate a fantastic 2023 season. Headline

BHC sponsor Avon Tyres were there in force, as were representatives of various class sponsors and

the wider Hillclimb world.


Major award winners on the night included Wallace Menzies, winning an impressive fourth British

title in his Gould GR59. A fantastic achievement when you consider the stiff opposition that he was

up against.


Johnathen Varley was presented his award for winning the class based BHC Cup presented by Classic

Car Insurance Broker Footman James. His GWR Predator with its unique 2 litre TKD YV8 engine

secured an amazing sixteen class wins during the season to finally secure a hard fought victory.

Damien Bradley was crowned as the inaugural BHC Tin Top – Top Ten Challenge Trophy winner in his

800+ horsepower Subaru Legacy. His battle with co-driver Steven Darley will live long in the memory.

Their battles, often joined by Simon Bainbridge in the massive Audi engined SBR Chrono were

certainly a sight to behold.
