The MPH, shown in the previous picture, was entered for the July 1975 Cordon Rouge meeting.
In practice brake problems sidelined the 6 cylinder Riley MPH, but the organisers kindly agreed that I could substitute the 4 cylinder Imp, if I could get it there in time.
A frantic journey all the way back to Staffordshire, with an MPH very short of retardation, ensued, followed by another, to get the Imp there in time to practice.
Surprisingly the smaller, and much less powerful Imp went up in a time only 3 and a bit seconds slower than the MPH had done 3 years previously. Had there been a prize for consistency on that day, we would certainly have won it, climbing in exactly 76.0 seconds each run !
