Organised totally by volunteers, this wonderful mix of garden party, festival and commemorative hill climb for cars and motorcycles raises funds for local charities and projects on behalf of Heart of Bucks. An incredible amount of over £630,000 to date!
So, what can you expect from this year’s Festival? Well if its cars and bikes, then the hill will be packed with both, with commemorative runs celebrating motoring through the ages from the early 1900’s to modern day exotics. Returning to storm the hill is the Brooklands Napier Railton. Why not buy a Grandstand ticket and see all the action.
In the Paddock you can get up close to the vehicles and drivers, visit the fun fair and ride the dodgems, check out the Soapbox competition and very special guest Fuzz Townsend from TV hit show Car SOS. How about finding out more about that treasured family heirloom? Eric Knowles and his team from the BBC Antiques Roadshow will give free valuations of any item that fits into a carrier bag or a digital image.
Call in at the new Engineering Village showcasing local automotive craftsmen and meet biking legend Sammy Miller MBE.
Come and help celebrate some special anniversaries – 60 years of the Mini with a cavalcade up Kop Hill led by legendary rally driver Paddy Hopkirk, the coach from the Italian Job, 110 years of Bugatti, the centenary of Talbot, 60 years of Marcos – an amazing variety of cars across the ages.
With so many things to see and do a break for some food and drink will definitely be in order. So, relax in the food court while taking in the sounds of the stage, with a fantastic line up. Then why not browse the many exhibitors and indulge in a spot of retail therapy – from art to clothing, memorabilia to food.
Whether cars and bikes are your thing or not rest assured this year’s Kop Hill Climb Festival is a family affair.
