The 1963 Akademos was held on June 15.
1963 VTC Round ? – MUCC Akademos Trial
The 1963 Akademos Trial was described as the “hell trial”, run in atrocious weather conditions. One article said there was continuous heavy rain leaving many roads almost unnavigable. There was also “low temperatures, driving rain squalls, fog and sleet.”
Through all this, the Fords came out victorious, taking out the top four placings, with Frank Kilfoyle and Mike Flanagan victorious in their Falcon by more than half an hour from team mates Harry Firth and Graham Hoinville in a Cortina.
