Kop Hill Climb is now accepting entries for the Centenary event at Kop Hill, Princes Risborough, Bucks.

On Kop of the World

Following the huge success of the 2009 Kop Hill Climb Revival event that attracted over 250 cars and motorcycles and over 5000 spectators, the organisers are pleased to announce that the Centenary Kop Hill Climb celebrating 100 years of competition at this famous speed hill climb venue will take place over the weekend of 25-26 September 2010. Kop Hill is one of the oldest hillclimbing venues in the UK, which saw action from 1910 up until 1925.

Entries are welcome from owners of pre-1973 vintage/classic cars and motorcycles. This is not a timed hillclimb, but merely an event to re-enact the halcyon days of the past at Kop Hill. The Hill itself is just over 1000 metres in length, rising gently to a 1-in-6 gradient halfway up, followed by a 1-in-4 just before the summit.

For 2010, classic car owners and clubs are invited to display their vehicles in the Paddock, but will not be eligible for a run up the Hill. There will also be an expanded range of trade stands and autojumble.

Gates are open from 09.00am and runs take place between 10.00 – 13.00 and 14.00 – 17.00 on both days. There will be six free viewing platforms and the Bonhams stand will be increased in size by 50-percent. Public entrance to the event is £5 adult. Proceeds will be donated to local charities. For more information contact organiser Tony Davies e-mail: organiser@kophill.info or check out the event website www.kophillclimb.info for full entry details and a short video of last year’s event. Kop Hill is located at Princes Risborough HP27 0LB, Bucks, OS sheet 165 815030. PB
