4:30pm Wednesday 19th September 2012 in Local
ORLETON’S Scott Moran has kept alive his hopes of retaining the MSA British Hill Climb Championship title.
Moran won a round at Doune and now trails leader Trevor Willis by just four points with one meeting remaining.
Moran and Willis face a title shoot-out in the hill-climb season’s finale at Loton Park on September 30.
While Willis won the first run-off at Doune, he touched the barriers in the second, leaving Moran to take victory. Roger Moran was second in the first run-off and Tenbury’s Alex Summers was a creditable eighth.
Although there are 40 championship points between the top two, Willis is four ahead when dropped scores are taken into account.

Round 32: 1 Scott Moran 42.49; 2 Willis 42.66; 6 Roger Moran 44.98.
Provisional championship standings: 1 Trevor Willis – 278 points; 2 Scott Moran – 238; 3 Roger Moran – 198.
