Take a step back into South Australian Motor Racing history with The Glen Ewin Hill Climb Revival. The day will have more than 40 cars on display throughout the grounds with some of the original class winning cars from the 1930s and 1950s as well as the original victors trophy.
Shortly after the war, a keen group of enthusiasts from the Sports Car Drivers SA established the Hill Climb race at Glen Ewin Estate. The race required the cars to drive up the steep driveway at the Estate and out onto the Lower Hermitage road and into the Adelaide Hills. The race was commonly known as the “Jam Factory” hill climb, because of the products made at the Estate – sauces, jams, and preserved fruits. The track was used from 1948 to 1951 when an Act of Parliament banned all further motor competition on public roads.
Start your day with a refreshing Fig Gin, breakfast and lunch will be available at the Glen Ewin Estate Cellar Door. Pre-booking is recommended.
On-site parking available.
