BHC 70th Anniversary Meeting

CHAMPIONSHIP CHALLENGE 12th and 13th AUGUST 2017

Shelsley Walsh will be the focus of the 70th anniversary celebrations of the British Hill Climb Championship during the weekend of August 12 and 13.

The weekend will see another Shelsley first with a Double Header round of the British Hill Climb Championship on both days.

The Championship organisers, BARC, wanted to come to Shelsley Walsh for their championship celebrations, as Shelsley Walsh is the oldest hill climb venue and where both the 50th and the 60th Anniversaries have also been celebrated.

We will therefore have a bumper meeting with four Top 12 Run Offs over Saturday and Sunday plus a gathering of cars that have been influential to the oldest motorsport championship in the U.K.
