Three times Top 10 Challenge winner Karl Davison from Salisbury has wrapped up the title again at Gurston Down behind the wheel of his potent four-litre Gould V8 single seater racecar.

Davison's awesome machine was just too quick for the other unlimited capacity racing car class contenders to stay in touch with, and a fine sub 28 second run was his reward. After a dry first run the drivers began their second timed runs just as rain was starting to fall resulting in a drastic loss of grip which meant that nobody had a chance of improving on their earlier times.

Abingdon's Steve Butts took his 1.8 Lotus Elise to the Gurston Down Hillclimb Championship title ahead of perennial sparring partner and 2003 champion Tim Stevens (Lotus Exige) from Wimborne.

In the 2,000cc modprod saloon class Andover's Karl Stevens (Mark 2 Escort) came through for the win despite breaking a driveshaft in morning practice. But Verwood's Andy Bascombe, third on the day, did enough to take the class championship title.

Gurston's sponsor and New Forest Peugeot dealer Jonathan Gates from Brockenhurst was again too fast for the rest in the 2,000cc modprod sports car class in his 2.0 Westfield, taking the win on the day and the class title.

Salisbury's Chris Cannell almost equalled his season's best in his amazing twin-engined 2.6 Force SR8 sports libre car and ran out winner of his class on the day and in the championship.

The 1,100cc racing car class record holder Rob Barksfield (Corfe Mullen) set the second quickest time of the day in his sophisticated 1.1 PCD Saxon. But Totton's Duncan Barnes, second in class on the day, took the class championship with his 1.0 Force as Stockbridge's Nik Gregory (1.1 Jedi) broke a driveshaft while warming his tyres for his first and only dry timed run.

Lymington's Peter Sexton (1.4 OMS) was well ahead for the win in the up to 1,600cc racing car class.
