The Nwcc thought about having a re-run of the climb to celebrate the clubs 50th anniversary in 2005 but the Track license requirements and amount of houses on the course made it unviable. I believe the main reason the hillclimb was discontinued was because of housing development encroaching on the track. Yes the club went to the Highclere course in 1975 and we still use it twice a year making it the longest running hillclimb in Tassie. In between we had a couple of years at Flowerdale for which we have no information whatsover. The image below (if it works!) is of John Zeigler in the ex Alan Ling ex Geoghegan Holden. I would say it was taken at the position of picture 13 of Dennis's.
Dennis, I would love to see your pics of highclere if you can dig them out.
