DEREK HILL IS the son of Amer­ica’s first For­mula 1 world champion, Phil Hill. Like his fa­ther, he is a Cal­i­for­nia na­tive who cut his teeth rac­ing sports cars be­fore head­ing to Europe to pur­sue a ca­reer in open-wheel rac­ing. To­day, Hill stays ac­tive on the track in vin­tage rac­ing events, in­clud­ing the Good­wood Re­vival, and also par­tic­i­pates in many shows, in­clud­ing Rév Auto (re­vauto.org), which he co-founded. We caught up with Hill, 43, en route to Italy, where he was set to drive a clas­sic Alfa Romeo in the 2018 Mille Miglia.
