Martin Jones - 1967 Brabham BT21B

Chateau Impney Hill Climb 2017

A short trip down the M6 to Chateau Impney for the 2017 Hill Climb proved a very worthwhile journey, with a lovely selection of cars from ex-works Jaguar D-Types to a Group-B rally cars, there was something for everyone. With a short but technical track running up in front of the main house, there were plenty of vantage points for spectating, and with a bit of exploration, a number of places to capture some images of the event as it unfolded.

I was only there for the practice and qualifying day (Saturday), but this was enough to get shots of most of the cars that interested me, and the relaxed pace of the event meant there was plenty of chances to sit back and enjoy the experience without being constantly on the move looking for the next photograph.
