Camps Bay Hillclimb Commemorative Run

Camps Bay Hillclimb Commemorative Run

On the 11th of November 2012, 61 Crankers in their cars met at the Camps Bay High School rugby field to celebrate the Hillclimbs which were driven from 1917 till 1962.  The background of the 12 Apostles and Camps Bay beach was wonderful to see.  There was a festive atmosphere and the misty morning became a warm sunny day.  I went with Derek in Jon’s recently restored 1959 Ford Anglia.  The car was perfect.  It is the only Anglia in Crankhandle Club.  We drove up Camps Bay Drive to Kloof Nek and turned left to get to Signal Hill where we enjoyed the view of Sea Point. Then turned and come back down Geneva Drive to the field.  The views from Signal Hill are excellent but Lions Head was still in the mist.  Eight drivers from those hillclimbs were interviewed by the media for a TV show.

On the field we cooked bacon and eggs on skottels  and served it in a roll.  I t was a lovely morning.

    Gorgeous pictures! What a view! Of the cars too, of course. 🙂 Sounds like a really good day out in Cape Town.
