Hillary recovers from a spin in his Daimler Dart at Mosport’s Moss Hairpin.
Reg Hillary, 96-years of age as of this writing, is as sharp and lively as someone half his age. He’s also participated in many forms of motorsport, from Speedway Bikes to Daimler Dart sports cars to driving in, and winning, the first Shell Oil-sponsored cross-Canada Rally, the 4,000-mile Shell 4000, in a Studebaker Lark of all things! He’s also won at Canadian tracks like Green Acres, Harewood Acres and at Mosport’s first race in the spring of 1961. John Wright recently caught up to this busy man at his home in Cambridge, Ontario.
