The Bob Kelsey years:

As the Hillman Imp has now passed its 50th birthday its well worth remembering just how good these cars were and still are.

Bob Kelsey tries the Zulu Warrior Imp for size

When Terence Tracey held a garden party for Bob Kelsey a lot of Impers turned up to greet Bob, he was the man who took the circuits of South Africa in his 998cc Hillman Imp back in 1966.

Thanks for this Terence.

Yes that's Bob showing a Mini and a Renault the way to the winners flag.

Records are still being broken even in 2013, first the JoLon Imp drove 14,000 kms from JoBurg to Coventry, then an Australian guy named David Pilbeam, drove the 14,500 kms across Russia to Finland and then England, Ireland and on to Scotland, on his own!
