In 2004 the Midland Automobile Club started a fundraising scheme to help secure a 99 year lease on the Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb by raising money purchasing the custody of a Yard of Tarmac.

With the lease now secure and still some Yards Of Tarmac available, we need to restore the buildings around The Courtyard and The Farmyard.

The funds raised so far have provided the MAC with The Stratstone Restaurant and now the MAC Offices and Meeting Room, which opened in Spring 2012.

If we can ‘sell’ the remaining Yards of Tarmac this will give us a significant sum of money to go towards further restorations and improvements to the current facilities.

We now offer you the chance of purchasing the custody of a part of this famous site – a square yard of the tarmac for £125.00 (or multiples). Each contributor will receive a certificate confirming the number of the relevant square.

A map of the hill showing each square will be displayed at Shelsley together with a list of names which include Sir Stirling Moss OBE.

In recent years the Midland Automobile Club has offered members, competitors and clubs the opportunity to sponsor the famous paddock sheds.

There are currently 53 sheds that are now available for sponsorship and can be dedicated to a loved one, a club, or in memory of.

All sheds will have a brass plaque with agreed wording between yourself and the MAC who will organise the engraving and mounting of the brass plaque.

If you are dedicating your plaque to someone and not sure of the details of their competition history, the MAC Archivist can assist you with further information.

The funds raised will go towards conservation and restoration of the Paddock Sheds.

There is now a dedicated web site for the Shelsley Walsh Water Mill in the Courtyard. The team of ‘Dibnahs’ work tremendously hard on the water mill project and have made a website to track weekly progress of a gem of engineering. 


The Dibnahs have the mill running at most events throughout the season. If you would like to have a guided tour outside of the meetings or at an event you are holding at Shelsley Walsh please get in touch with them and they would be very happy to oblige.

The MAC Archive is where all historical material associated with the Midland Automobile Club who run Shelsley Walsh, is centred. From the club’s inception in January 1901, former Secretaries, competitors and members of the Club have put aside items of interest and these have now been pulled together in the one location.


The majority of event records are associated with the hill climb meetings at Shelsley. All original results sheets are retained and since 1952 and all entry forms but mainly there is a large photographic archive exists and is continually being added to, both from present day meetings but also gifts from enthusiasts donating prints from the past out of their family photo albums. Most of this is digitised for quick and easy access.


The collection includes information about the first meeting at Shelsley in August 1905 to the present day but also features miscellaneous materials such as steward’s armbands, tickets, posters and all the paraphernalia of running events. Social events are also included in the archived material. In addition, we have received bequests from member’s wills, particularly books and photographs, which although not always directly MAC-related, contain valuable historical information on motor racing and on the cars that have competed here.


The Archivist is happy to receive requests for information and research from these various sources in return for a donation to Archive funds.

Requests for research and photographs should be directed to
