Since 1910 Kop Hill has seen the complete alphabet of cars on the hill. Some roaring, some cruising and some puttering to the top.
You’ll witness fire-spitting aero-engined beasts lunging up the hill, then stroll across to the paddock for your first glimpse of the latest models up close and personal. We go from steam to electric with just about every gasoline powered marque you can imagine inbetween. At Kop Hill you can experience the weird, the wonderful, the fast and the first of their kind. Marvel at a Marlborough, be charmed by a Chalmers or perhaps size up a Sizaire Freres.
Our entrants come in three invited categories. Veteran and Vintage from 1900 to the 1930’s. Post-War era vehicles which runs up to 1979. And finally more modern cars that are either crowd pleasing, rare or significant and in many cases all three.
We love to celebrate special occasions and invite cars with big birthdays such as those launched fifty or a hundred years ago.
With 800 cars and bikes that run the hill or are on display you are sure to expect the unexpected at Kop Hill Festival.
