Chateau Impney Hill climb 2017 – What’s on?
Once again over 200 pre-1967 cars will compete on the 885 metre Chateau Impney course. Spectators can explore the open paddock again, meet the drivers and see the car up close.
There will also be a number of demonstration runs, featuring cars and bikes from every era of motorsport history.
The event will also commemorate two very special celebrations.
2017 marks the 60th anniversary of the Maserati factory team’s retirement from racing and Juan Manuel Fangio’s spectacular World Championship title win in 1957. To mark the occasion there will be a range of famous Maserati racing cars competing from Maserati 6CMs, a 4CS, an 8CM, 250F, 150S and T26…
It’s also 50 years since the Chateau Impney Speed Trials ended in 1967 (read about the original speed trials here).
As well as the on track competition, there will be flypasts in the air. A vintage funfair and the popular Footman James Concours d’Elegance. With the winning car chosen by a public vote.
On the Saturday night, “The Impney Party” for competitors and invited guests, will be bigger and better than previous years. Entertainment will include stand-up comedy, live music and a casino.
