Marshals Needed: Kop Hill Climb 16 and 17 September

Probably the friendliest, easiest going meeting of the year. Guaranteed lunch breaks, lunch packs and the grateful thanks of all the entrants.

Kop Hill near Princes Risborough Buckinghamshire, has been a speed hill climb for motorcycles and motorcars since 1910, but was closed in 1925 when a student lost control of his Bugatti and went into the crowd, signalling the end of closed roads racing in this country.

On Saturday, 16th and Sunday, 17th September 2017 there will be the ninth revival meeting. The event will not be a timed speed hill climb but rather a commemorative run to recall Kop Hill’s glorious past. A sort of mini-Goodwood (as it used to be in the early days!) on closed public roads! Last year we had over 16, 000 spectators over the two days and donated over £100,000 for local charities.

Our plan is for 400 motorcycles and motorcars taking to the hill over the weekend, (about 220 each day), the majority of which will be Veteran or Vintage that could have taken part in the early days of the run, together with a whole host of vehicles up to 1972 plus a class for modern exotics.

I am organising all the marshalling and will be acting as Clerk of the Course. I am again looking for a full team to run the event. Please have a look at the web site or talk to any of those who have marshalled the previous events – I guarantee a great weekend. Details are here: www.kophillclimb.org.uk.

It should be a really good event – if you can help please contact me on Hobson.c@btinternet.com. Please title your e-mail ‘Kop Hillclimb’ and let me know if you would like to work in the paddock or on the hill. I look forward to a deluge of replies! Those who did the event over the last seven years will tell you just how superb it is.
