On Saturday 23rd July, Shelsley Walsh hosted one of their calendar favourites - Thrill on the Hill. A dream for any Morgan enthusiast, Thrill on the Hill is one of the UK's largest gatherings of Morgan. An event, not to be missed, showcases a great variety of Morgan cars both past and present. Visitors are delighted to see these iconic motor vehicles both up close and as they tackle the challenging hill climb. It's the perfect opportunity to celebrate true British sports cars and indulge in the very best of what Morgan has to offer.
Stratstone Morgan Stourbridge were lucky enough to join Shelsley Walsh in this celebration by taking some of their most premium products to display in the cottage grounds. Including the very special Morgan Aero 8. Our guests had a fabulous weekend in the stunning countryside of Worcester. Enjoy a snapshot of our event in these photos >>
On the Saturday, we were privileged to be able to take three of our most prestigious Morgans
to showcase at Shelsley Walsh; The Aero 8 Demo, 3 Wheeler Gulf and Roadster V6, along with 15 vintage 3 wheelers. With the set up complete, our spectacular Morgan were gathered in our Stratstone cottage grounds ready to dazzle guests. Thankfully we were greeted with plenty of sunshine throughout the day and these special cars gleamed effortlessly.
Guests were able to get up close to our most premium product - the Morgan Aero 8. This is the most refined Aero product to date. Being light weight, powerful and effortlessly stylish, the new Aero 8 is a true British sports car. Stratstone Morgan Stourbridge are lucky to be 1 of 13 dealerships to hold the Aero 8 demonstrator. Being one of the exclusive demonstrators, it's a rare sight to be enjoyed and a must see.
We were able to showcase the Morgan 3 Wheeler Gulf, a rare sight for visitors as its one of 100 ever built. Showing off an interesting paint job, it's an eye catching motor car which has been purposefully designed to put the passion and fun into driving. The 3 Wheeler Gulf is the embodiment of adventure. This classic received the attention of 100's of visitors, our displays were proving to be Morgan paradise!
The Morgan Roadster V6
beamed in the spotlight in our cottage grounds and proved to be very popular amongst guests. Being the most powerful and well equipped car in the classic range, the Roadster V6 is powered by an impressive 3.7 litre engine making it an exhilarating drive. This gorgeous car is the ultimate representation of a pure Morgan sports car.
As racing gets underway, an array of bright Morgan take to the spotlight at the starting line. Surrounded by many Morgan enthusiasts, the crowds gather to witness these spectacular sports cars line up together in preparation to take on the challenging hill climb.
Our fantastic display of Morgan's heralded a lot of attention from visitors in our Stratstone enclosure. Our Morgan Aero 8 turned out to be a main attraction and a favourite throughout the day. With exceptional good looks and being technologically impressive, we're not surprised it was all eyes on the Morgan Aero 8.
As the racing came to an end, visitors were able to soak up the atmosphere and get close to the cars that had been competing. With exclusive access to over 100 of these exclusive motor cars, the event was rounded off with a rainbow of vintage Morgans on display in the paddocks of Shelsley. It turned out to be a brilliant day at Thrill on the Hill and a great celebration of Morgan cars.
