Shere Hill Climb 7th September 2014

Welcome to the Shere Hill Climb web site

The 2015 Hill Climb is scheduled for 6th September

Entries will open in early March 2015

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.

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

There were many improvements for 2014 including viewing on both sides of the course with the hedge cut low, the course was longer and there was 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. in 2014 we an amazing £ 13,000, 30% more than 2013.

We'd particularly like to thank Quicksilver Exhausts, Spellbound Cars and Brooklands Motor Company who provided invaluable help and support.

In 2014 we supported the 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.
