Motorcycle Hill Climb

Motorcycle Hill Climb


The hill climb, organised by Ian Sherrard of Sherrard Classic Vehicle Events, has quickly established itself as one of the most popular and competitively contested events in the off-road motorcycle calendar, with tricky challenges for riders racing at speeds up to and in excess of 100 miles an hour.

The undulating uphill track, extended last year, includes a testing 50 -60 degree bend just 50 metres from the start line, giving spectators a grandstand view of thrills-and spills-with live commentary keeping everyone up to speed.

With no limits on speed (or noise!), the race is open to all solo motorcyclists and 3 wheelers of any cc size who are up for the challenge. New for 2019 is a class for junior riders aged between 13 and 16 years, a great opportunity to spot future talent.
