“A Record of the RAC British Hill Climb Championship”
The last period Chateau Impney event was in ’67 (the following year’s was cancelled at the 11th hour), by which time I was following speed events vicariously through glimpses of Autosport and Motoring News. With a complete set of this magazine from August 1950, Paul Sheldon and Duncan Rabagliati’s ‘black book’ A Record of the RAC British Hill Climb Championship and Chris Mason’s fine Uphill Racers tome on my shelves, I could while away hours reading up on golden days.
