20th Anniversary Hillclimb Entry Full

Blurring the scenery on  a Velocette

Last year 116 riders paid a deposit towards this year's event. As of today 10th August 110 of those riders have fully completed their entries, therefore we are not looking for any more riders for the Hillclimb itself.

There is room in two categories however: Entry Form Rally Entry Form Show

This year there will be only two groups of over 55 riders in each, as we have made every effort to streamline the event for time.

We have some very interesting bikes entered this year. Some rare ones that may reward a special look are a Calthorpe, and a 1958 Hagon BSA to name just two.

The Japanese motorcycles are becoming more evident with an increase in names like Honda, Suzuki, Kawasaki and Yamaha. A few of the rarer makes like Royal Enfield, Sunbeam, Benelli, Velocette, Indian and even Lambretta are also making an appearance this year, some for the first time.

We have 11 different Vintage Motorcycle Clubs represented amoung the riders.

An increase in the amount of female entrants should help to decrease the gender imbalance, with 10 women riding this year. For those people who like an extra wheel added to the bike, there are 6 sidecars, with Bill McDermott returning with his very rapid Jawa. We have two hillclimb specials - a Grindley and a TriBSA .

Among the entrants we have two riders who have ridden in every one of the previous 19 Hillclimb Weekends.
