TR Register steals the show at Kop Hill Climb

TR Register steals the show at Kop Hill Climb

The TR Register with the excellent organisation and hospitality of Chiltern TR Group had a very successful Kop Hill Climb event last weekend.

The Kop Hill Climb is a hill climb in Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire. The climb was originally established in 1910 but due to a minor accident involving a spectator on the public road that formed the hillclimb, the last competitive event was held on 28 March 1925. It was resurrected in 2008 non-competitively and has grown in popularity ever since. There is even a soap box race for budding drivers.

You see many rare cars you wouldn't normally see at shows, with their owners ready to go up the over a mile long, averaging gradient over 9% (that's about 1:10/1:12 in old money, 1:4 at its steepest) historic hill.

The weather was kind, there was lots of interest in the cars on display, the club and the Chiltern Group had many enquiries and kept all very busy giving information and advice. Each day had 20 plus cars on display from Jabbeke TR2 through all the marques to Grinnall.

Many cars when up the hill which excited the packed crowds, there were also 'celebraties' there from TV to Music and Tony Hadley (ex Spandau Ballet) also drove the hill

Here are some videos of Jabbeke TR2 driven by Glen Hewitt of Protek Engineering, Chiltern member Graham Higgins in his TR6 and fellow member Steve Rockingham in his works TR7 V8 Rally car.

The Chiltern TR Group Catering Team excelled, even by their high standards, and lots of compliments from guests, friends and greater family, as I am sure you know, the Chiltern hospitality is legendary.

There were generous contributions from diners and once Chiltern have covered their costs, they will be able to make a sizeable donation to a worthy charity.

Everyone there played their part with good humour and enthusiasm. The teamwork was impressive to see, a BIG WELL DONE and thanks to all concerned, it really showed what the TR Register and the Chiltern Group are all about.
