Doune - Photo by John ChartersThe final weekend of the 2004 Nicholson Mclaren British Hillclimb Championship at Doune was another rain affected event and ended with a double win for champion Adam Fleetwood who was over a second faster than anyone else in each run off.

Rain started during the early class runs and varied in strength throughout the day

Round 33

Doune - Photo by John ChartersIn the wet conditions massive power was not an advantage as both Will Mason and Tom New proved, but the varying rain did favour the early runners. Top qualifier Trevor Willis could not be bettered even by champion Adam Fleetwood as rain squalls came through. In the run off the rain had abated slightly and conditions were even for all.

First runner Will Mason set the his mark but all bar local hero Stewart Robb bettered him. In the damp conditions penultimate runner Adam Fleetwood ran a fantastic 43.75. Final runner Trevor Willis was the only runner to try slicks and his banzai run netted him second place.

So it was Adam Fleetwood, followed by Willis with Martin Groves third on a charge to take third place overall in the championship by the end of the day. Fourth to Rob Turnbull
and fifth to Willem Toet with Roger Fleetwood sixth.

Round 34

run off was Will Mason who set a mark that only three could better. Tom New running third to finish sixth; Rob Turnbull fifth just behind Will Mason in fourth. Trevor Willis a
spinner at junction. Paul Haimes third, with Martin Groves second, on a charge to championship third. Penultimate runner Tim Mason off at meadow. Last runner of the season Adam Fleetwood over second quicker than Groves to cap off his winning 2004.
