Shere Hill Climb 7th September 2014

Welcome to the Shere Hill Climb web site

Many thanks to all volunteers, entrees and attendees at our 2014 Hill Climb, the 'post event' feedback has been better than we could have expected. Going forward to 2015, we'll strive to make it a better event without diminishing the wonderful social atmosphere and eclectic mix of motors!

The event takes place up Staple Lane, in the Surrey Hills near Guildford. The lane is a public road which, which will be closed to all other traffic. The course runs from close to the junction of Staple Lane with the A246 to the summit of the hill with the paddock located at the base of the hill.

The course ascends by 300 feet over a distance of nearly a mile with a series of challenging corners along the route. There are panoramic views across the Surrey countryside, London and the Wembley Arch can be seen in the distance.

Last year there were 125 cars entered, in 2014 there will be 135, representing an amazing cross section of motoring history from the early days of motoring right up to a few modern exotics. Each car will complete three runs starting at 9.30am and finishing at around 5.00pm.

There are many improvements for 2014 including viewing on both sides of the course with the hedge cut low, the course will be longer and there's a much improved paddock and showground area.

Entry to the hill climb car park will only be from the A246 end of Staple Lane (GU4 7RL). There will be no access from the other end of Staple Lane.

The hill climb remains a charity event, with all profit going to local charities. Last year raised an amazing £ 10,000.

We'd particularly like to thank The Brooklands Motor Company and Quicksilver Exhausts who provided invaluable help and support last year and again this year.

This year we are again being supported by Brooklands Motor Company, Quicksilver Exhausts and they're also joined by Spellbound Cars.

In 2014 we're supporting local charities: Surrey Air Ambulance, GASP Motor Project, Wildlife Aid Foundation, Brooklands Museum, Shere Infants School. Cherry Trees, Shere Village Nursery and West Clandon School.
