Entry Form

You can apply to enter the 2021 Shere Hill Climb only via the form below.
Application for entry is open from 1st March until 30th April.
A picture of your vehicle must be supplied with your entry form submission.
Please make sure that you follow the correct specification for the photo (see below).

We expect to be heavily over subscribed as usual. We are looking mainly for interesting cars of any age or value. Tell us what you have got, why we should run it and why the crowd would love to see it going up the hill.

Fee of £100 per car is payable upon successful entry.

We hope that you have read our Pandemic Policy and understand and accept our reasoning behind it.

Pandemic Policy

Despite only having a vague idea of how this year will pan out we have decided that we have to approach the 2021 event in a positive fashion. It takes most of the year to bring the event together so it would be tragic to arrive at September and find we could have held the event but have nothing prepared.

We plan to open for entries in the usual way at the beginning of March for two months. In early May we will take stock, consult the local authorities and make a final decision on going ahead. Hopefully by then we will be in a position to take a positive view.

We will then inform the successful applicants and ask for their entry fees, which will be non-refundable if for any reason we have to cancel the event. The reason for this is that we spend nearly all the entry fees on setting up the infrastructure for the event and it would be unreasonable to leave our hardworking committee exposed to these costs. We are already incurring a trickle of monthly expenses which we are ourselves are responsible for. If you do not wish to enter on this basis we will quite understand.

It may be that we have to run the event with a restricted spectator policy which will reduce our money raising capability for local charities but we must do what we can to give us all something to look forward to in these unprecedented times. I hope we can still count on your support.

  1. Acceptance of entries will be at the sole discretion of the organisers.
  2. Entry fees
    1. Accepted entries are non-refundable. The entrant acknowledges that this is a small event run on a voluntary basis in aid of local charities. The majority of the costs are incurred in advance, on a non-refundable basis so in the unlikely event that the Hill Climb has to be cancelled, the entry fee will be non-refundable.
    2. Once an entry is accepted, the car can only be changed with the agreement of the organisers. If you arrive on the day in a car you didn’t enter without prior approval, you will not be able to enter.
  3. Entry procedures
    1. Entrants should arrive between 07:30 and 08:30 on the day.
    2. A driver may enter more than one car, a car may have different drivers but no car may be entered more than once. The carrying of passengers is not restricted but must not exceed the vehicles legal passenger capacity.

    2. Runs up the hill will only be permitted if the run number is displayed and the driver’s wristband worn.
    3. While on the hill all drivers are under the control of Marshals. Drivers must not start until given a signal by the Marshal at the start line. If a Marshal shows a red flag then the driver must slow to walking pace and stop as quickly as possible where they are not obstructing the hill. Drivers may not re-start until given permission by a Marshal.
  5. The event is a demonstration run of classic vehicles.
  6. Although the road is closed to the public, it is subject to normal road traffic regulation. All vehicles must be road legal and drivers must hold a valid driving licence.
  7. Entrants must ensure that their vehicles are properly maintained in a road-worthy condition and are capable of tackling the hill.
  8. Drivers must drive in a responsible manner. Marshals are instructed to flag down drivers who in their opinion are travelling at an excessive speed or driving dangerously and those doing so will be excluded from the event. The speed limit on Staple Lane is 60 mph.
  9. Entrants vehicles must be fully insured and in the event of an accident the organisers will accept no liability or claims.
  10. Once over the finish line drivers must slow as quickly as possible, there will be pedestrians and vehicles on the road after the finish line.

    3. Marshals will control the movement of vehicles in and out of the paddock to the start of the hill.
