Just took a peek at the entries for the Clifton Hillclimb -- Dave and Lindsay Maxwell are entered!!

Way to go!

Don and I have many fun memories of Clifton. He was awarded, and we still have, the perpetual trophy after being the first person to win overall three times; in 1967 with a 289 Cobra belonging to John and Paul Nygaard, 1968 in his 289 Cobra, and 1971 in a Lola T-190 Formula 5000. Also had class wins in 1969 with a friend's 1965 Mustang Notchback, in 1970 with our Shelby GT-350, and 1975 in a friend's Cobra Daytona Coupe.

In those days, most of the entrants were camping (and partying!) in the parking lot right at the start line. One year we had motorcycle races, at night by the moonlight. We had the only motorcycle with a headlight. Don was behind two guys on a knobby-tired bike; the passenger slipped off - onto the knobby tire. Thump, thump, thump, then screaming. Another entrant had flown his plane to Clifton, so airlifted Dave back to Phoenix to be checked out. He lived, and actually fathered a son a few years after that -- much to the surprise of the rest of us! To this day, we all still make sure Dave remembers that incident.

Kudos to Dave and Lindsay for branching out beyond autocrossing - and remember one side of the road goes into the mountain and the other side of the road goes…….down, down, down……… laugh.gif
