OMS Wins Queensland Hillclimb Championships

Malcolm Oastler has won the Queensland Hillclimb Championships in his OMS 28 1300t. MG Car Club of Queensland hosted the event at Mount Cotton over three days of practice and competition 29th to 31st May 2015.

Fastest Time of Day and the outright championship win went down to the wire, with Malcolm just getting ahead of Dean Tighe who had led throughout the day. On Malcolm's last run he posted a 38.30s to snatch the trophy away from Dean whose best was 38.69s in his 4 litre Dallara-Judd.

This win extends Malcolm's unbeaten run of wins in his turbo charged OMS.

Also competing at Sunday's meeting was Jim Milliner with the ex-Jan Koszuta OMS 2000M: chassis 105. Jim has completed a full rebuild of the car which uses a 999cc power unit. He finished fourth in his class on 41.49s, having been outpaced by the larger capacity engines in the up to 1300cc class split.
