Hillclimb - Star driver

Star driver … Goes without saying, but I’m saying it anyway. Star driver at Doune has to be the irrepressible Colin McLachlan in the mighty ‘Moose’, an Austin Seven based Special which weighs around 4 cwt (just over 200 kilos), is powered by an almost nuclear 750cc motor and has about as much contact with terra firma as the eraser ends of four school pencils. As for bravery? I don’t think there is a medal big enough to do him justice.
