BEN NEVIS STATION GOLDEN 1200 HILLCLIMB
The Golden 1200 Hillclimb come about as a vision between the Ben Nevis Station owners and Hayden over a drink one day.
Hayden had been previously involved with the station and had driven the road several times, commenting how good of a road it was each time.
After a few phone calls with local car clubs and clerk of the course, Roger Laird, the dream very quickly become a reality.
Managed and promoted by Paddon Rallysport Group, the team’s vision is to build this into a iconic motorsport event which, when paired with Cardrona’s Race to the Sky, would alternate with each other every second year
