ALBANY VINTAGE & CLASSIC MOTORCYCLE CLUB
NORTHAM HILL CLIMB
|SOME of our members, Neil
Bromilow, Kelly Walsh, Des Gaze and Peter (Macca)
Macdonald entered this years Northam Hill Climb at
Mt Ommeney, this was run by Ray Oakes and his team from
Perth. Practice started at 8 am. It was Kellys
first try at this hill. You should have seen him wind-up
that little C.Z., Kelly had a fan club at the hairpin
bend top see him lift the front wheel every time. Des and
Wes, once through their smoke screen also did well.
Wess Bultaco looks great. Neil and Macca are still
trying to out do each other. Neil got over excited after
turning the hairpin corner, dug the footrest into the
road, ended up laying the bike under a tree and himself
beside it. This was a good opportunity to test out his
leathers, and smell the flowers on the side of the road.
Fortunately no damage done. Didnt feel any pain
until he was on the way home. After this minor hitch
(second practise run) Neil calmed down a little, and went
onto win the event. The weather was perfect, the company
great, and a good time had by approximately 50 riders.
Outright winner and Racer class winner: Neil Bromilow.
3rd place in Racer class: Peter Macdonald Ladies winner:
