I haven't posted anything to the front page for some time so thought I'd better make some effort to keep this somewhat current. Since the last update I've added another 7 albums of images to the site. To start off with there a three albums from the last hill climbs of 2008 that I attended - Loton Park September 14th, Shelsley Walsh September 20th & Shelsley Walsh September 21st.
Don't be confused if you were looking for chevronbar.co.uk and have ended up here. This is exactly the same site just moved to a new domain, zipp.co.uk, to better represent it's focus on photography and to open up some options for the future. Chevronbar.co.uk was never meant to be just a photo gallery, it had just evolved that way.
Congratulations to Scott Moran on winning the British Hillclimb Championship title for 2008 at yesterday's round at Gurston Down. Martin Groves, who was the only other driver with a chance of winning, lost out due to more car problems - he definately hasn't had much luck with it this year. He still managed to show his talent by taking the morning's top 12 win. Jos Goodyear had qualified fastest but failed in the run after a visit to the recticel. He made amends by taking the afternoon's top 12 win and best time of the day. Hopefully a good sign for 2009, though there is still quite a bit of 2008 left.
Today I've moved this site to a new web server. This machine is much quicker than the previous one and is also located in the UK so most visitor's network connection to it should be much better. Overall you should find it now much more responsive to browse.
This is the first site that I have moved to this machine and is being used to test out the new system so I'm sorry for any interuptions to services. Please use the contact link on the left if you have any problems.
I thought it was about time I posted an update. The site didn’t take off as I expected last year but it was still very interesting time. Though I’d visited a couple of events at Shelsley Walsh in 2006, 2007 was my first full year and I learnt a lot about hill climbing, how to photography it and met some very nice people. Thanks all.
