The BHC Organising Team is excited to announce that, for the first time, a three event Tin Top Challenge will run alongside selected rounds of the BHC presented by Avon Tyres and BHC Cup presented by Classic Car Insurance Broker Footman James during the 2023 season.
The ten fastest eligible competitors from both the first and second timed class runs will qualify for the BHC Tin Top Top Ten run-off. The competitor with the fastest time in each run-off will score ten points with points down to one for tenth place.
The inaugural Tin Top Challenge will take place over three BHC event weekends during the 2023 season, starting at Harewood on 1st/2nd July. The second qualifying event will take place at Shelsley Walsh on 12th /13th August with the final round being at Loton Park on 23rd/24th September.
As eligible cars are based on those driving on UK roads, spectators will be able to recognise and relate to them. Expect to see Subarus, Audis and Mitsubishis with 800 plus horsepower battling it out, alongside special Minis, Porsches and many others for the fastest ‘Tin Top’ time. The winner of the BHC Tin Top Challenge will be the competitor with the highest total score from the six run-offs during the 2023 season and will be presented with their Award at the BHC Annual Awards Dinner in January.
BHC Championship Coordinator Tim Wilson said “I am delighted to see that a three event Tin Top Challenge will run alongside the BHC during the 2023 season. Spectators will see some of the fastest saloon and sports cars battling for points at three iconic Hillclimb venues. I’m sure that it will be a great spectacle and will hopefully develop into something bigger in future years.”
