Kop Hill Climb 24-25th September 2022

Once again the Register had a good weekend at Kop Hill Climb (24/25 September) which in previous years has often seemed to experience its own micro-climate of low cloud and mist.

This time we mostly basked in warm autumn sunshine, enjoying the usual wide variety of cars climbing the hill and parked in the display area. Although the 24-litre Napier Railton from Brooklands didn’t make a return appearance this time there was still some splendid machinery, including the 16-litre airship-engined 1905 Isotta Frascini Fiat which did actually run the hill at very respectable speed and can apparently go much faster if the driver is brave enough - it was built originally for a land-speed record attempt

Despite all the attractions on offer the turnout for the Register AGM on Saturday was rather modest with 5 Magnettes on display (6 on the Sunday), but we enjoyed the company of our President Celia Palmer. Due to the lack of any volunteers to take over, Paul Batho has stayed on as chairman for another year, and Chris James was formally elected as the new Treasurer
