Challenge Events, Sun 23 Sep 2018

Motorcycle Hill Climb

Motorcycle Hill Climb

Details

Organised by Ian Sherrard, of Sherrard Classic Vehicle Events, the day centres around a 220m bike sprint through the grounds of Leighton Hall, including a thrilling 60 degree bend just 50 metres from the starting line.
However, the action doesn’t stop there. As well as the race (which features live commentary) there’s the ever popular auto jumble and trade stands.
If you’re up to the challenge, the race is open to all solo motorcyclists and 3 wheelers of any cc size. There is no speed limit, and certainly no limit on noise! However, if you want to come along and watch, there will be plenty going on throughout the day to keep you entertained.
