Stratstone Club is returning to Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb racing for another summer of events.
The Classic Nostalgia Experience will be the first event of the season, which takes place 22nd - 23rd July 2017. Set in the Worcestershire countryside, Shelsley Walsh Speed Hill Climb is one of the oldest motorsport events in the world. As a notably steep course, power is important and timings vary considerably between the most powerful cars than at many other venues.
This year, instead of Group B rally cars, Shelsley Walsh is inviting Group A rally cars to take on the hill climb at The Classic Nostalgia Experience.
We are expecting to see wide variety of these 80s modified classics, including; the Subaru Impreza, Ford Sierra Cosworth, Subaru Legacy, Ford Escort Cosworth and Mitsubishi Evolution.
Some Group A rally cars are specifically modified for this vintage car rally. Mostly, Group A rally cars are road cars with turbocharge and four-wheel drive, traditionally fitted with suspension and tyres to suit conditions. Although Group B rally cars may be very powerful, Group A's handling and traction makes them much more effective during races, as well as being safer. There will also be 10 of the Campbell's cars on display, including the incredible Jaguar E-Type.
The first day of racing will take place on Saturday 22nd July. We will be offering Stratstone Club members a hospitality package which includes a qualifying day entrance ticket, lunch and soft drinks available throughout the day.
On the busiest day, Sunday 23rd July, there will be a street concourse, which will include the first 100 cars to arrive, followed by a parade run up the hill during lunch break for the top 15 race cars. Our exclusive hospitality package for the second day of the meet includes views overlooking the start line and a BBQ lunch amongst many other things, find our more details here.
Off the track, you will find Shelsley Walsh's main stage in the Courtyard. If you're looking for the perfect car festival, this event has it all. From amazing rally cars, to motorsport guest talks, to great music. Buy your ticket now.
Later in the summer, Shelsley Walsh will be celebrating 70 years of the British Hill Climb Championship with the ever-popular Championship Challenge.
Taking place on the 12-13th August, the Championship Challenge also offers exclusive VIP hospitality packages which can be found here. You can find out more information about the benefits of being a Stratstone Club member by visiting our dedicated Club page.
