Rebecca's First Race

NEWS2021-04-23

This will be the first time that Rebecca Brierley from Honley has ever attempted to drive a hill climb, but what she lacks in experience she makes up for in enthusiasm. Rebecca, whose first love is horses, will be driving her husband's 1929 Bentley as part of the Benjafields Club and Bentley Day on Friday 25th June and surrounded by seasoned professionals. No pressure then.

"I've been to a lot of rallies with my husband and the Bentley Club, but I am usually the navigator. I've driven the car out and about but this will be my first ever hill climb, I am more used to riding than racing - a different kind of horsepower! My husband Graham can't do the hill climb so I guess it's down to me. My orders are - just come back in one piece and don’t damage the car!"

Good luck Rebecca, you can do this!
