The Kop Hill Climb takes place over the weekend of 21st and 22nd September. This occasion marks the 5th year of the Kop Hill Climb Revival, when the Chiltern Hills will reverberate again to the sound of Bikes and Cars thundering up the Kop Hill Climb.
This "must attend" event is now a fixture on the historic motor sport calendar. No less than four hundred bikes and cars will storm the hill and there will be a further 200 on display in the paddock. Nowhere else can visitors see such a range of early sporting and special vehicles in motion. Its popularity with owners of special bikes and cars is only rivalled by the tens of thousand of spectators drawn to this annual charity driven event.
And iIts not just bikes and cars! The Paddock is packed with attractions:
- Shop in various retail outlets
- Relax in the extensive food court
- Taste the special Kop Hill Ale.
- Look up to Sunday's Battle of Britain Flight.
