Kop Hill Climb takes place this 16-17 September in Princes Risborough, Bucks – tickets available at http://www.kophillclimb.org.uk/tickets.html. It’s your chance to see amazing historic, vintage, veteran and classic cars and bikes up close, in a truly historic location. Get your grandstand tickets at 2016 prices for the best view, but don’t forget we also have attractions such as the Wall of Death, a steam fair (including helter-skelter), Edd China on his Lofa Sofa (the world’s fastest sofa), the Soapbox Challenge, food, drink, entertainment and a wonderful setting in the heart of the Chiltern’s.
Kop Hill Climb is run entirely by volunteers and is operated under Heart of Bucks – Buckinghamshire’s Community Foundation – with the sole aim of raising money for local community projects and charities.
The event has raised more than £440,000 since the revival first took place in 2009.
The climb was originally one of several throughout the Chiltern’s, established in 1910, with some of the first races recorded in our archives.
Throughout the next fifteen years, Kop Hill became a major event on the motor sports car and motorcycle calendar. Many famous drivers and riders ran up the hill, such as Malcolm Campbell in his 12hp Talbot Blue Bird, Raymond Mays in his Bugatti, Henry Segrave driving the 2 litre Grand Prix Sunbeam, Count Zborowski in the 8 cylinder Ballot and Archie Frazer Nash, in his Kimll.
Planning your day
With so much to see and do at Kop Hill Climb you’ll need a few hours to enjoy everything. Make sure you give yourself time, not just to watch the hill runs, but to also get up close to the vehicles, talk to the owners, explore the displays and enjoy the entertainment.
The quietest time to come, avoiding any queues, and getting the best view of the hill run, is at 9.00 in the morning. You’ll benefit from seeing all 300+ hill runners in the morning session before enjoying lunch in the food zone and then taking time to stroll around the extensive paddock and then maybe watching your favourite cars or motorbikes run again.
On the day prices have been increased but if you buy ahead by clicking below they will cost the same as last year.
