This is the second of two exciting Speed Hillclimbs for cars at spectacular Barbon Manor in 2018.
Incorporating the British Hillclimb Championship supported by competitors from Local & Regional Championships too. This National A / B event includes two rounds of the exciting British Hillclimb Championship, and features most of the top drivers in the British Championship as they make their annual visit to Barbon. It was great event at Barbon on July 2nd 2016, held in somewhat challenging conditions which made making the right tyre choice vital as the track changed from dry to wet and back to dry again in quick succession. No-one got close to breaking Jos Goodyear’s phenomenal record set in 2015, so what’s the chance of the record being beaten in 2018? Be there to find out!
The event is also a qualifying round of regional championships so you can be sure to see many cars & drivers competing for position in their own championships.
Why not make a weekend of it in July? Visit Barbon on Saturday, and the next round of the British Championship at Harewood on Sunday!

The spectator gates open at 8am, and the first practice is due to start by around 9.30am. You’ll be hard pressed to tell the difference between practice and the competition runs – they’re just as exciting and only a stopwatch will show if the cars are slightly slower! Apart from a break for lunch, the action should continue right through until late afternoon, generally finishing between 4.30 & 5pm. Hot & cold refreshments are available on site throughout the day for competitors and spectators.
