New Partnership with Octane Magazine
Shelsley Walsh Speed Hill Climb have partnered with Octane Magazine for the 2018 season as the Worcestershire motor sport venue goes into its record breaking 113th year.
The partnership will see two Octane Concours at the two big weekends of the seven weekend competition season at the hill with two very different events. The first will be for pre-’85 cars to be held at the ‘Classic Nostalgia’ weekend on July 28th and 29th, while the second will be for 1985 cars onwards to be held at the ‘Championship Challenge’ weekend over August 11th and 12th that is the highpoint of the British Hill Climb season and the actual 113th birthday - to the day - of the hill.
The ‘Octane Magazine Young Timer Concours’ on August 12th opens up a new opportunity for car owners coming to Shelsley where there is a Concours catering for owners of younger classic cars, something that has never taken place before at the venue. It will embrace cars from the ‘80s and ‘90s homologation special era such at the Ford Sierra and Escort Cosworth, Lancia Integrale, Toyota Celica GT-4, Subaru Impreza, Mitsubishi Evolution and BMW M3 through to modern day supercars from Ferrari, Aston Martin, Porsche and Audi.
Other events taking place over the August 11th and 12th weekend will reflect the history of Shelsley Walsh as well as seeing the fastest cars in the British Hill Climb Championship hit 145mph over the finish line.
Octane Magazine will have an increased presence at the venue together with offering members of Shelsley Walsh’s organising club, the Midland Automobile Club, and fans of Shelsley Walsh Octane subscriptions both on site and digitally. Shelsley Walsh will give exclusive access for Octane Magazine to access the Shelsley Walsh archive and other aspects of the 113 year old hill that have not been seen before. These will appear in the magazine in the coming months.
