Summer Solstice Success

On the glorious morning of Saturday 21st June, car enthusiasts gathered at Shelsley Walsh for our 1st Open Hill Climb Event. A combination of beautiful , classic vehicles and some very fast specials experienced the unique opportunity of driving the famous course and Alvis, Austin, Bentley, BMW, Jensen, Lotus, Mercedes, Porshe, Rolls Royce, Triumph were amongst some of the marques that were displayed in all their glory and full to the brim of friends and family in cavalcades up the hill.

With the luck of weather on our side, the day continued to draw in crowds right into the afternoon. Marking the longest day of the year and beginning of summer, the BBQ grills were lit up serving some lovely food, Pimms were accompanied with strawberries and mint and the 5 piece Jazz Band created a relaxing atmosphere in the courtyard. This was in contrast the vibrant, loud noises coming from the pits. Whilst the clear British sun lapped at the tyres of vintage cars, across the paddock into the orchard a wonderful driving experience could be found, Steve Gardner and his Rebel Replicas gave children the thrill of driving a scaled version of Land Rovers.
Exclamations such as “excellent” “brilliant” “thank you so much book me in for next year” and “do we have to stop” accompanied over doses of smiles!Yes we will be holding the event again next year so as places are limited book your place for up to 9 runs asap.
