The Crown

2016 Harewood FTD Champion John Chacksfield will need to watch out for hillclimb returnee Dave Banner, if he is to retain his FTD crown in 2017.

The pair were both running in the 53 second bracket at the Jim Thompson Trophy Hillclimb at the weekend. John edged out a twelve hundredths margin to take FTD with his best run time 53.82s from Dave on 53.94s.

This season John is competing in the British Hillclimb Championship with his supercharged OMS 28 and has already qualified for his first Top 12 run off at Harewood in May.

Dave runs a Hayabusa powered OMS 28 and has only completed a couple of meetings so far. He is a former Harewood Speed Hillclimb FTD Champion and will no doubt put pressure on John as he becomes more familiar with his new car.
