4th August Montague Burton Trophy Hillclimb Latest News
The Montague Burton Trophy Hillclimb was abandoned part way
through the first timed run due to the structural damage caused to a
building adjacent to the course. The extent of this damage coupled
with the danger of imminent collapse was such that it was deemed
unsafe to continue the event.
Email received from the Forster family
Just a quick note to let you know that after his antics yesterday & his
subsequent trip to Hospital, Adam was thoroughly checked for damage,
given a clean bill of health & kicked out yesterday evening. Apart from
a stiff, back & neck, a few bumps and bruises & a totally shattered ego
he is otherwise unscathed.
We would all appreciate it if you could pass this info on to everyone
involved in his rescue & the subsequent recovery of the Hornet.
We would also & most importantly like to thank all the Marshalls,
Paramedics & other Officials who all sprang into efficient action so
swiftly. We always say that we really appreciate all the hard work that
goes into every event, but it is only when you are on the receiving end
of such fantastic help & care that you really appreciate it!
I am very pleased to report the events of yesterday have done nothing to
dampen his enthusiasm & we both look forward to starting the season next
year with a new & improved car.
Thanks again, it is hard to put into words how grateful we really are.
Mark, Den & Adam Forster.
