The latest classic events
The attractions for Shelsley Walsh’s 2017 Classic Nostalgia weekend at the Worcestershire hill climb venue include a tribute to the Campbell family, with Donald Campbell’s daughter Gina and his nephew, Don Wales, attending. The Napier Bue Bird replica will take part in demonstration runs on the hill, too. The Campbells have long links with Shelsey Walsh: Malcolm Campbell competed on the hill in 1935, and Donald gave a talk to the club in 1950 about his father’s land and water speed achievements. David de Lara will be signing copies of his new book Donald Campbell – 300+ A Speed Odyssey over the weekend.
