THE CUNEO-COLLE DELLA MADDALENA HILL CLIMB

THIS year's Shelsley Walsh hill-climb, an account of which appears in this number, was the third of a series of hill-climbs counting for the new "Championship of the Mountains," organised by the A.I.A.C.R. The first of the series was the ZbraslavJiloviste hill-climb in Czecho-Slovakia, the results of which were published in our July number. The second was held in Italy on 29th June last, and consisted of the Cuneo-Colle della Maddalena hill-climb, which has long been an annual event. The course is rather a different length to that at Shelsley Walsh, being over 40 miles long, and contains innumerable corners. Fastest time of the day was made by Tazio Nuvolari on a 2-litre Grand Prix Alfa-Romeo, who beat the record for the hill, while Rudolf Caracciola was fastest in the sports car class. The full results were as follows :
