“That win helped shape the rest of my career, but it’s also fair to say that it was further confirmation of just how capable the groundbreaking Mini was – an essential ingredient in automotive design if any product is to enjoy longevity… and what a well-deserved life it has had.”
Hillclimb runs start at 9am on both Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 June, with Hopkirk appearing on the Saturday, ahead of Matthew Field, the Italian Job film author, who will be interviewed by Motor Sport’s Editor, Joe Dunn.
Live music and entertainment will be running throughout the day; a shopping village will offer plenty of retro memorabilia.
Ahead of the event, Stirling Moss will be remembered with the unveiling of a blue plaque at the hillclimb, this Friday.
Tickets for the E-type 60 event are available on the event website.
