Thrills and spills at Shelsley


Recommended Posts

Pre-war hillclimb racing at Shelsley. 12th July, 1930. One of ten rounds of the European Hill Climb Championship that year. 

Crowds at capacity, marshals in plus fours and white coats, and the uniformly bewoggled Boy Scouts in attendance.   :D

Hans Stuck in his 3½-Litre Austro-Daimler (number 66) makes Best Time of Day, and went on to become the 1930 Europa Bergmeister (European Hillclimb Champion).

A bit of background history, how Shelsley came to be . . . along with some great footage from 1995, in this 90th Anniversary video.

Sorry Deggers couldn’t resist. 
 

a modern view and featuring a TR so it’s slow enough to appreciate the journey

You must be itching for another attempt with the new engine, H. Any plans for a revisit during the '22 season?

I have booked for 2nd and 17th July. Need to see if I get a place.
