Dudley Coram Memorial Lecture': Claude Hill 1907-1982
An appreciation of one of Britain's most under-rated Motor Engineers. October 15, 2011

It was Claude Hill who, having joined Aston Martin as a draughtsman in 1927, designed the two-litre push rod engine, the revolutionary Atom and the 1948 Spa 24 Hour Race winning car. The Spa car was the basis for the post-war 2 litre Sports model, the DB2 and the DB Mk III.

Claude resigned from Aston Martin and went on to join Fergusons where he designed the four-wheel drive coupling (the Viscous 4WD LSD) that now forms the basis of many modern 4WD cars. Hill worked his way up to Director and Chief Engineer before his retirement in 1972.

Still a few tickets left if you are quick.
The Coram lecture is always interesting - whatever age of your car, the background to it is what helps make the Club so enjoyable to be part of.
