Twelve years of research have culminated in this book, a concise history of Australia’s first dedicated car hillclimb venue which gained a reputation as Australia’s Shelsley Walsh in the early years. It covers the full period from conception in 1936 to its demise in 1961. It concludes with the resurrection of the Rob Roy Hillclimb and its place in modern hillclimbing today. Every meeting is covered and documented, both pre and post-war and details all the famous drivers to have taken part in the event. Magazine and newspaper reports of the era are included along with driver interviews. An account of every class and outright record is documented and enriched with an index referenced to include drivers, cars and times. The text is superbly illustrated with period photography and illustrations throughout.
