Watt forces his way to top spot in Hillclimb

DARYL Watt produced a personal best and unofficial class record on his way to posting the fastest time in round two of the Grafton Sporting Car Club Hillclimb Series at the weekend.

Watt completed the Mountain View course in his Force PC in 43.91seconds to take out to Formula Libre class.

Watt's impressive drive was one of 11 PBs recorded on the day.

Matthew Cowper, driving a Toyota Sprinter, produced a PB to take out the C3 Road Registered class.

Cowper finished in 54.34sec to edge out Greg Slade (Mitsubishi Lancer) by just 0.43sec.

The C5 3J Club Cars division was a family battle featuring the Heuchmers' Toyota Corolla and the Campbells' VW Beetle.

Bill Heuchmer (50.78s) topped the sheets ahead of Heath Campbell (51.02s), Jenni Heuchmer (51.80s) and Christine Campbell (52.47s) respectively.

For many drivers, the hillclimb provided a perfect warm-up ahead of round five of the NSW Hillclimb Championship to be staged at Grafton on June 7-8.
