From the archives - a selection of pictures from the 1976 Wiscombe Park Hill Climb event, near Honiton.

We came across this fabulous set of images from the 1976, Wiscombe Park Hill Climb event whilst looking through the Sidmouth Herald and Midweek Herald archives this week.

These superb pictures were taken on the 11th April 1976 at Wiscombe Park near Honiton. The forthcoming 2017 climb is set to start next month and you can find out more details about this year’s line up here.
