Sarah Gaudion takes ladies hill record.
On the Monday of August Bank Holiday Guernsey Motor Club hosted a club meeting at Le Val des Terres hillclimb. Sarah Gaudion had been competing at Gurston Down the previous day & caught an early morning ferry to make the Guernsey meeting. During practice Sarah managed to get under the existing ladies hill record held by fellow Guernsey competitor & OMS driver Jackie Le Cheminant. However a thunderstorm during the lunch break produced wet first timed runs and on the second run although the track had dried out, Sarah could not find the form she had shown during practice.
The club visited the venue for a further meeting on Saturday 3rd September and there was unfinished business for Sarah, knowing that she could run under the record. She was delighted with her fastest run of the day setting a new ladies hill record of 31.42 seconds. Well done Sarah.
Sarah now holds ladies records in both Guernsey & Alderney.
