“Beyond the bevy of fantastic cars, the social and cultural aspects of this story really appealed to me.”
“Just after the war, 7000 people would turn up to these meetings all dressed to the nines. These were the days before television and .05 laws. Of course what really did it for me was when I realized I had access to so much original film footage and photographs, just fantastic!”
Each phase of this unique story, told through rare film footage and photographs, is enriched by commentary from six-time Australian Hillclimb champion Bruce Walton, as well as other motoring greats including Tony Gaze, Reg Hunt, Bob Jane, Earl Davey Milne, Diana Davison Gaze, Penrite’s John Dymond and motorcycle demon, Max ‘The Atom’ Rathbone.
“Taking a 300 Maserati to a Hillclimb, was like taking a bull to a china shop. It was the fastest sports car in the world at the time, but there was nowhere else to drive the bloody car!”
