Mid-Cheshire Motor Racing Club and Scammonden Hill
2000 represented the 35th anniversary of the opening of Scammonden Dam as a speed hill climb venue. This short, but tricky hill has long been regarded by competitors as a significant challenge where a good time depends on achieving the perfect balance of car control to maximise the use of its available power. Indeed, until the early 80’s, the hill was regarded as sufficiently difficult to be included in one of the National Hill Climb Championships and was regularly visited by the top British hill climbers. Now, run by Mid Cheshire Motor racing Club, it is mainly used for club level events, many of which are rounds in a number of northern regional championships for the club competitor.
This is our own venue and is looked after by MCMRC and the MG car club, work has been progressing over the last couple of years to improve the facility and people who have been using the venue will be able to see the progress up to date, a lot of hard work has been carried out by club members at the weekends, the lower assembly area has been greatly improved with hard core being laid down and then leveled off, drainage of the area has also been improved with new gulleys dug to allow water to run off into the stream on the right.
