THREE Wee County drivers are set to tackle Scotland's oldest race track this weekend.

Jock Ramsay from Blackgrange and his Alloa-based sons John and Paul will be racing at the Bo'ness Hill Climb over Saturday and Sunday, September 10 and 11, along with around 70 others in historic race cars.

Scotland's first purpose-built motorsports venue, The Bo'ness Hill Climb at Kinneil Estate was once raced by legendary Scottish drivers Sir Jackie Stewart and Jim Clark.

Jock will be taking part with his Opel Manta race car and will be aiming for success at an event he last won back in 2010.

John and Paul will be sharing their Vauxhall Nova in what will be a busy competitive weekend for the Ramsay family.

Sir Jackie Stewart OBE said: “Bo’ness has a great history of motorsport in Scotland and some of the greatest hill climb champions have performed at Bo’ness.

“My brother drove there, as did I, and we both thoroughly enjoyed it.

“I went along to the Bo’ness Hill Climb as a wee boy looking at people like Denis Poore and Ken Wharton performing up the hill – happy memories and it’s wonderful that the event has been brought back to Bo’ness.

“I hope everyone enjoys a very happy weekend of motorsport.”

The two-day event, organised by Bo'ness Sporting Automobile Club (BSAC) for the first time in 2022, will feature racing from a range of legendary cars dating as early as 1913 right through to the 1980s including Bugatti, Lotus, Bentley, Morgan, Aston Martin, Austin Healey, Porsche, Cooper and Triumph.

The race was established in 1934 with regular events taking place, including British Championship meetings which attracted top drivers from across the UK including Sir Stirling Moss, until 1966 when the circuit was closed.

In 2008, a group of dedicated enthusiasts re-opened the racing track with the help of Falkirk Council and staged the first competition at Kinneil for more than 40 years.

Vernon Williamson, chairman of BSAC, added: "The event opens on Saturday, September 10, at 9.30am for practice sessions with competition runs in the afternoon.

“This format is repeated on Sunday.

“Entry to the event is £10 for adults per day and free to accompanied children under 15.

“Unaccompanied under 15s will not be allowed entry for safety reasons. Dogs cannot be admitted to the venue either.”
