Rob Roy Hillclimb
The Culture Victoria website has recently added content about the local Rob Roy Hillclimb. The Rob Roy Hillclimb in Christmas Hills is a course for light cars to race uphill against the clock and first opened in 1937. It has a special place in Australia's motoring history, with eight record holders going on to become Australian Grand Prix winners. The online collection includes some beautiful footage and stills from 1930s races and current and past hillclimb drivers speaking about Rob Roy.
