Shelsley Walsh Hillclimb





Shelsley Walsh Hillclimb, July 11, 1931

The only important hill-climb now held in England, this annual "open" event took place on July 11, 1931, when R.G.J. Nash set up the fastest time of the day by climbing the 1,000 yards long hill in 43 2/5 secs. His Frazer-Nash car "The Terror" had twin rear wheels which lent additional grip to the road. The record for the hill is held by Hans von Stuck who, on July 12th, 1930 drove his Austro-Daimler car up in 42.8 secs. Formerly the record was held by Raymond Mays with his Villiers-Vauxhall Special, its being 45 3/5 secs. (Sept. 14th, 1929)
