Here are a few pointers.
Firstly, it’s open to road-registered cars or bikes built between 1900 and 1980, plus a few moderns if they are considered to be either exotic, crowd pleasing, incredibly rare or all three. Given the historic nature of Kop Hill Climb, priority is given to pre-war bikes and cars. Of late, post-war has increased in popularity, so not every post 1945 – 1980 car or bike application means they’re a shoo in to run.
This is because the hill timings mean we can only run so many vehicles a day (we could fill the hill runs twice over).
Even if you don’t get selected, if you applied early we do run a hill standby list to cover for no shows. Other than that, you can always apply to display your vehicle in the paddock: there’s a separate section of this web site dedicated to those who would like to bring their bike or car to show.
The great thing about entering the Kop Hill Climb is that it’s not timed or in any way competitive: it’s all the thrills of running up a closed road, without any of the of the spills. It’s about showing off your pride and joy to the thousands of enthusiastic spectators who turn out to admire what you’re riding or driving. You can even take passengers. We look forward to seeing you there in September.
