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.

The Paddock

Over the weekend over 800 vintage, veteran, classic, historic and sporting vehicles will enter the paddock. You will see, hear (and smell!) vehicles charting the history of motoring over a hundred years as they get ready for their runs.

The paddock also holds the sponsor and exhibitor displays, featuring historic and modern vehicles, and the Clubs and Classics area with fascinating and wide-ranging static displays by their passionate owners.

Do not miss the the end of each session when the iconic 24 litre Napier Bentley, tackles the hill bringing history to life. Its followed shortly afterwards by the latest £250K McLaren 675lt

You can also take a stroll around the "cherished vehicles" parking area at the edge of the hill climb viewing area./p>

The weird and wonderful

It's not all about cars and bikes. Kop Hill Climb is a fun family event with plenty to see and do.

The Wall of Death is a must-see for everyone young and old, never failing to astound. Or, for something more modern, test your driving skills on the ASM Racing Bug.

The Soapbox Challenge is a nail-biting competition, with teams of budding racers trying to go the greatest distance through our purpose-built ramp, chicane and obstacles, to win the Beaumont Cup.

In the Children's Zone, our historic fun fair rides take you back in time, from the Carousel to a 1930s Dodgem ride.

And, when you get hungry, our Food Zone has the usual and unusual from Cornish Pasties to South African Bunny Chow!

Hidden gems

Take time to explore each little corner and search out the hidden gems.

On the AYMP stand you'll discover a British Touring Car Racer and a raffle where you could win the chance to go up the hill in a classic Porsche 911.

Modern exotics in the paddock and maybe a visit from a local rock star with a classic from their stable.

Ever wanted to explore a fire engine? well we have two. A modern engine from the local brigade and a US fire engine which saw action in New York during 9/11.

Keep and eye and an ear out for Laurel and Hardy whether its chugging along in their Model T or on the stage at lunchtime.
