Today the Shelsley Walsh Hillclimb course (in Worcestershire, England) was taken over by a veritable plethora of non-current vehicles. The gathering has been an event for a few years, but this year was the first I’d heard of it, so I jumped in a car with some friends from work and headed over there. It was certainly worth the trip.

Cars gather for demo runs up the hillclimb course.

Liam Doran appeared as an invited guest, driving an RS200 Evo. He crashed into the banking and ejected his hood/bonnet.
