4th Hockley Valley Hill Climb Revival

Forty classic cars, mostly British, converged on 3rd Line in glorious sunshine on July 2nd for this fun event. There were 13 MGs, 10 Triumphs, 5 Morgans, 4 Jaguars, 2 Lotus, and one each of Porsche, Daimler, Mini, TVR, Mercedes and Allard. Oh, and our smart car Trudi plus various other spectator vehicles.
In attendance were several drivers who raced at Hockley back in the 50s and 60s including: Al Sands, Don  Albertson, Frank Mount and Don Haddow, the course record holder.  Many organizations including the Headwaters British Car Club, Georgian Bay British Car Club, and the British Saloon Car Club of Canada were represented.
Special thanks to organizer RLT, S. Morris for stepping into the role of official starter; photographers L. Hill, D.Woods; R. Jordan, P. Pontsa, and many others who made the day memorable.
