Menstrie Meeting 2002

Hill Climb Competition

The Hill Climb Challenge was held at Menstrie on 18 May 2002. The object was to see which entrant could travel 1 metre along a board at the steepest slope using only a Meccano Postwar Clockwork Motor No.1. The competition was exciting and the result were very close. Click here for the rules.

The winner was Tim Edwards with his three wheeler which managed to make it up a 60cm rise for the 1 metre travel (a gradient of 37 deg).

In a close second place was the proxy entry of David Laurance's 'Intrepid' four wheeler which just managed to beat the rest of the entrants
