It may be a short course, but still fun for drivers and spectators alike. Expecting a decent field of historics.

Update.
The weather wasn't kind but still topped 70 competitors in an interesting mix of vehicles (including a P76 from the Peking to Paris rally).
Damp/wet conditions made traction hard to find and the big power cars suffered worst.
Managed to pick up 3rd outright and 1st in class with the Europa.

Missed your original post on this.

The conditions would have been almost perfect for the Europa!
Well done!

I didn't take any picture on the day (well.... it was raining) and haven't seen any posted as yet.
Do have some onboard video I will upload in the next week or so, currently O/S earning the $$ to keep doing things like thrashing a 44 year old car.


OK I found a moment to upload a couple of videos.

Best run in the wet (at least not raining much at the time) with 2nd gear start.

Best run of the day with just damp track and some mud thrown in for fun.

The only image I took myself on the day, during a brief period of sun.
The Lotus hanging in the paddock with others from the Austin 7 club.



Edit: A few good images from the day are available here: http://martincreely.photoshelter.com/gallery/2013-11-24-MGCC-22nd-Historic-and-Classic-Hillclimb/G0000h.NrQot5GDQ/C0000wLSoJ_PZnFk

Great shots of the 69 Camaro (very Bob Jane ATCC) & 'Beechey' Mustang among others.
