We have been invited by the organisers if we would like a club stand for this event, and was wondering if anyone local would like to organise this.

Price for this year was 20 With car driver + Passenger for the day or 30 for the 2 days whilst it was 18 per person on the gate, and they will be offering a similar deal this year.

Regards

Frank maybe a problem for me as I only go on the Saturday, and if I'm lucky I'll be running the hill again which means I'll be with Fay in the paddock rather than with the club and static entrants.

I grew up about 5 miles away from Kop hill used to be where as a spotty youth we took our marina's and viva's to test there mettle, never realised it was a pukka hill climb event, might be tempted next year to give it a go in my HF1600, will be fun comparing it to a 1976 1256 viva HC!

It used to be a very big event back in the 1920's as it was an unmade road, which I think it was mainly chalk so it would have been quite slippy.
However a pedestrian who had been warned that it wasn't a good idea to stand where he was, was killed, and sporting events were banned on public highways.
About 10 years ago? Permission was obtained to close the road for one weekend a year with the proceeds raised distributed to local charities.
You can't just pay your money and enter, you have to apply, and if your vehicles is chosen as of sufficient interest by a committee, you get the choice of the Saturday Or Sunday, unless I think you have a prewar car then you can pay another fee, and run both days, if your car isn't chosen then you can join the static display along with many other nice cars.
If you are accepted its 40 for the day, for this you get an untimed run up the hill in the morning (it isn't a competition and the road traffic act still applies), and one in the afternoon,.
It's a great buzz and you can time yourself, and gets lots of waves and smiles on the way back down from the crowds.
This year they asked if entrants would take passengers up, as they were selling rides, the passengers picked a car out of the bag and on the bottom is the entrants number of the car they have chosen, this way no one can pick and choose, great idea, I took a lady and two children up, they loved it, and more money was raised for the charities.
There's lots going on, and I'd recommend the event to anyone.
