WHAT WE DO
Shelsley Walsh is the oldest motorsport venue in the world still using its original course. Since 12th August 1905 Shelsley Walsh has been attracting world famous drivers through the ages such as Campbell, Segrave, Caracciola, Bira, Collins, Stuck, carved their sporting careers hurtling up the 1,000 yard, 1 in 6 gradient track. In recent years John Surtees, Sir Stirling Moss, Andy Priaulx, Derek Bell and Hans-Joachim Stuck have driven the famous Shelsley Walsh tarmac that is nestled in amongst one of Britain’s most quintessential countryside locations in the rolling hills of Worcestershire.
Shelsley Walsh first used on 12th August 1905 when the Midland Automobile Club had to find an alternative venue to Sun Rising Hill near Stratford upon Avon. Since then the Club has run hill climbs at Shelsley Walsh, making it the oldest motor sport event still held on its original course. The start line, the corners, the views are essentially the same making it a jewel in the crown of hill climbing.
