THREE times World Touring car champion Andy Priaulx has welcomed the idea of a first hill climb at Pleinmont.
Priaulx, who lives close by to the venue for the Guernsey Kart and Motor Club’s projected new course, expects it to provide fast and exhilarating entertainment if the MSA give the go ahead to the late summer event scheduled by the GK&MC.
‘I think it is absolutely great and it is going to be fast.
‘I had always liked the idea of that one. It will be a fast Bouley Bay. A nice spectacle and the only issue is maybe where to put the spectators.’
Priaulx, who won the British Hill Climb Championship before branching out into touring cars, said Guernsey would make a great venue for a major motor racing event.
‘It would be lovely to have an Isle of Man type of motorsport event here. It would be amazing for the economy,’ he added during a major interview to appear in Guernsey Press in the next edition of Full Time out in early January.
