Gurston Down ready to host biggest event of the year
MOTORSPORT fans are looking forward to Gurston Down’s biggest event of the year, the British Hillclimb Championship, this weekend.
With a capacity entry of the very best Speed Hillclimbers in the land, not only will there be some cracking 150mph plus action against the clock, but the paddock will be full to bursting with some fantastic competition machinery to examine at close quarters.
The entry comprises 18 different classes catering for production-based cars, sports racing cars and single seater racing cars divided up according to engine capacity, so there’ll be some superb competitive action during Sunday’s competition to decide the class winners.
Then there are the climactic ‘Top 12 Run Offs’ when the fastest registered contenders from each set of class runs go for British Hillclimb Championship points in two special ‘shoot outs’.
Practice is on Saturday, August 24 (8.30am, admission £6) and competition is on Sunday (10.30am, practice from 8.30am, admission £10).
Accompanied under 14s get in for free and parking is free as well.
