Approaching 14,000 people flocked to Chateau Impney this summer for its annual motorsport event, the Chateau Impney Hill Climb. Attracting crowds of visitors from far and wide the event was strongly supported locally. Spectators were wowed by a spectacular array of pre-1967 competition cars alongside bikes, super cars and all manner of exotic demonstrations taking on the challenging Hill Climb course. Included in this line up were Old Yeller II, a Ferrari 250GT SWB, numerous Porsche 911 2.0 SWB and the Beast of Turin.
CIHC2017 will be celebrating 50 years since the last Chateau Impney Speed Trial was held in the picturesque grounds of the Chateau during the autumn of 1967. This year will welcome back many of the stellar cars which competed at Chateau in the 1960s including the 1960 F1 World Championship BRM P48. Numerous drivers from the period will return to take on the challenge of the new hill climb course!
