The most Championship wins for a single car in British Hill Climb history, whose driver jointly holds the record for the most title wins.
Produced for Roger and Scott Moran, the GR61X refined the GR55B to retain a lightweight yet robust chassis construction, with higher cockpit sides that sweep through the engine cover, the aerodynamics were further improved to suit.
With the same 3500cc V8 Nicholson McLaren Engine found in the GR55B, which dominated the seasons from 2003 to 2007 inclusive, it was sure to be a success. Success that spanned a 9 year period and claimed 7 titles in the process.
It was the first Gould car to be fitted with an electronically controlled, sequential gear shift and traction control systems, which have since been retro-fitted to the GR55, and whose use has been continued in the GR59.
Scott is the joint most decorated driver in the history of the British Hill Climb Championship, matching Tony Marsh's 6 titles in his GR61X.
Winning the title in 2008, 2009, 2011, 2013, 2014 and 2016 showed his raw driving talent to fend off challenge from other drivers in their newer cars, as well as Martin Groves in the GR61X's predecessor.
Scott is co-driving Graham Wynn's GR59J in the 2021 season, looking to claim a record seventh title to heat this year's top three battle.
Alex has been a front-runner for quite some time now, sealing championship victory in 2015 in the GR61X alongside Scott Moran with 26 podiums in 32 races.
His raw driving talent and sheer tenacity provided him 2nd place when piloting a DJ Firestorm in 2019 and 2021, battling fiercely with Wallace for the title - a joust we hope continues throughout 2022 and onward.
