What is a Hill Climb?

Hill Climbing is one of Britain’s oldest forms of motorsport – each car is given a set number of runs up a hill, with the aim of being able to complete that run in the shortest time possible – as the day progresses the drivers become more familiar with the hill and find quicker and quicker times as they compete not only against the clock, but also against opposing drivers to set the fastest time of the day.

What safety equipment do I need to take my car up the hill?

You’ll need a helmet – a small number of which are available to borrow from Shelsley. You’ll also need to wear a long sleeve top and trousers – T-shirts and shorts are not allowed.

My son or daughter want to passenger in the car with me. Can they?

No children under 12 are allowed in a car heading up the hill. Children over 12 must wear a helmet, long-sleeve tops and trousers.

Shelsley What?

Shelsley Walsh is regarded as one of the best hill climb venues not only in the UK, but in the world. Set in the stunning Worcestershire hills, it opened in 1905, and has held events continuously since then, only pausing for World War II and the COVID 19 pandemic.

Shelsley Walsh is a great place to watch these cars in action – a walk up the hill will offer you outstanding views of the area and of each car as it aims to do its best.

Over the years, 1000s of cars have competed on the hill, with drivers such as Stirling Moss having tried their luck on the course – the fastest time ever on the hill was recorded in 2021 when Sean Gould completed the 1000 yrd (910m) course in just 22.37 seconds.

What else is happening?

Away from the action on the hill, there’ll be great options for food and drink, including a fully-licensed bar, all set in the beauty of Shelsley’s courtyard.

Motorsport fans of all ages will have the chance to win exclusive merch as the Hagerty Race Simulator returns for 2024 too!
