You were, I'd say, about half-way down the hill. Almost directly below Hillclimb Drive, is that right? That corner is still the same, if I have it right, anyway.
Gee that's a good bit of land the Hills District Car Club has. Could I get a set of the photos from there for the club? I'm sure they'd appreciate them for their website.
I did that rally in 1992 and was fourth fastest on that stage - faster than the ex-Carlos Sainz Celica GT4. In a Gemini!!! Tight and twisty - suited my car better than the Celica.
That was the one & only time I've been there, & after a night on the rally waiting for the field to go through for the car
we were servicing to arrive, & then leap-frogging to the next service point, the early morning syndrome had well kicked in by then.
All I remember was that each car did a double loop affair & twice came through the corner we were on.
We then headed off to Victoria Pass if I remember it for a couple more daylight stages.
It was well into Sunday arvo before the tail end was through.
I've got around sixty photos, some repetitive at that spot at Hampton, but some nice photos of the Victoria Pass sections.
I'll start a topic I think & that will contain it for any discussion.
Sometimes I reckon this "Personal Aus 50s 70s" string can become cumbersome, so forming new topics may make the
subjects easier to follow, especially when it's on a fairly well contained theme.
I'll email you a set of the Hampton shots after they're posted & you're welcome to pass them on.
