UNBROKEN WORLD RECORDS
As 2005 unfolds, I note that after 12 years the following world records remain in tack. In May 1993 a party of Austin Seven enthusiasts ventured to Jersey, and at the famous Bouley Bay Hill Club Course set the following World Records
Steve Hodgson - Claims the world record for ascent of the
hill in standard engined Ulster with close
ratio gear box Windscreen Flat No Goggles 82 Seconds
Ken Berry - Claims World record for Mk 1 Ruby
with riding mechanic and open sunroof 142 seconds
Les Harvey - Claims World record for Austin 16 with
riding mechanic (taking French Polishing
lessons) 123 seconds
John Farnham - Claims World record for Austin 10 with
Dicky seat closed with Lady Beryl
(sober this time) from the Dog House Club 120 seconds
Clive Roberts - Claims World record in 1927 Chummy
with riding mechanic & screen closed
fully observed from a standing start
(excused wind) 120 seconds
(a bit hungry) screen open with goggles
but with an unassisted start and a flying
( ?? ) finish 103 seconds
We received this picture at our main nerve centre via an encrypted message from the NASA
observation satellite MAV.1S We have printed it as received and need to have it identified.
We add that there is no security implication .
