PAUL SQUIRES MEMORIAL TROPHY PAUL SQUIRES MEMORIAL TROPHY
The origins of the Paul Squires Memorial Trophy go back to the seventies and eighties, before bike engines took over in the 1100 class. Paul and his co-driver Phil Kidsley both worked for Cosworth; Phil worked in one of the machine shops on product development and Paul was on engine development.
The 1100 class was, in those days, one of the most competitive on the hills and Paul and Phil were often among the men to beat in a division that variously included such notable exponents of the time as David Gould, Allan Staniforth, Charles Barter and Russ Ward, among others.
Sadly, Paul, who was unmarried, died at an early age from a form of leukaemia and Phil, his wife Hilary and their son Dean (who was to start hilclimbing in a Jedi before transferring to the circuits with some success) donated the Paul Squires Memorial Trophy to the HSA in his memory. It was awarded for the most meritorious performance in the 1100cc racing car class, by a constructor or driver, during the year and has continued ever since.
