Just been watching the Hill Climb there on the Front Runner channel - any of our lot had a go there ? - it does look like it would be rather expensive to enter though.

It's an invitational, mostly older cars, although Sabre 6s and I think coupes and early GTEs are eligible. Not all classes are timed from what I remember, probably coz the quick stuff is faster than they have an MSA track licence for ;-)

There was some pretty exotic machinery doing the run - but a couple of ordinary cars as well Morris 1000', beetles etc.

In theory for 1968 and earlier cars only. By invitation, tried to get one for the coupe without success. Pricy but includes a posh sat night dinner. More of a midlands good wood hillclimb than a serious event, but a good atmosphere and well organised.
