Charity driven recreation of one of the UK´s mot prestigious hill climbs. The earliest recorded climb was in 1910. Throughout the next fifteen years, Kop Hill became a major event on the motor sports car and motorcycle calendar.
Many famous drivers and riders ran up the hill, such as Malcolm Campbell in his 12hp Talbot Blue Bird, Raymond Mays in his Bugatti, Henry Segrave driving the 2 litre Grand Prix Sunbeam, Count Zborowski in the 8 cylinder Ballot and Archie Frazer Nash, in his KimIl.
The modern period started in 2009. Now 300 cars and 100 bikes cross the start line each half day. 16,000 spectators come and we raised over £100,000 for local charities in 2016.
