Com­peti­tors gather for the sec­ond Chateau Imp­ney hill­climb re­vival

Motor Sport News - - Historics -

Jack Wood­house, win­ner of the in­au­gu­ral Chateau Imp­ney hill­climb, will de­fend his crown against a ca­pac­ity 200-car en­try dur­ing the sec­ond run­ning of the re­vival event on July 9/10.

Wood­house will field his For­mula Ju­nior Lo­tus 20/22 in a very strong class that in­cludes Cal­lum Grant (Mer­lyn Mk5/7), Martin Wal­ford (Lo­tus 22) and the De To­maso For­mula Ju­nior of Westie Mitchell, a car that won the 1964 Ital­ian Hill­climb Cham­pi­onship.

“It will be my first hill­climb with the car and I’ve not done one for at least 10 years. I’ll be run­ning it with Brands Hatch gear­ing, which won’t be very suit­able,” said Mitchell.

The en­try for the Worces­ter­shire event is packed with qual­ity across 18 classes for cars up to 1967, re­flect­ing the orig­i­nal pe­riod for the com­pe­ti­tion on the drive of the Droitwich ho­tel.
