Car and Bike Show cancelled at Festival of Speed

Unfortunately the Car and Bike Show this weekend at the Oliver’s Mount Festival of Speed has had to be cancelled.

The hillclimb events will continue to run as per the schedule but due to a lack of uptake from car and bike clubs we have unfortunately had to cancel the displays we had planned.

With a record entry the hill climb is set to be a great event and we look forward to getting racing going again at Oliver’s Mount this weekend.

Record Entry for Festival of Speed Hill Climb

With just 1 day to go, the 2018 Oliver’s Mount Festival of Speed is looking like being one of the biggest hill climb events ever to be staged at Oliver’s Mount.

With over 110 bike entries and 50 car entries, there will certainly be plenty of action to watch.

The Festival of Speed compliments an amazing weekend of sport with Scarborough once again hosting a stage of the Tour De Yorkshire cycle race. If you are in town for the cycling, why not come and watch 2 wheels going just a little faster!

New website for Oliver’s Mount

The Auto 66 Club have set up a new webpage solely for the Oliver’s Mount race meetings. The current Auto66.com will be used for all social and club race meetings as well as car and bike speed hill climbs.

The new webpage www.oliversmountracing.com is now up and running and with a little bit of tweeking over the next two weeks.

The current Oliver’s Mount webpage run by Chris Machin will shortly become Oliver’s Mount Legends and will deal purely with the historic part of the racing and can be found at oliversmountlegends.com. This will also tie in with the new proposals that are presently being put before the council over the legends museum at the circuit.

The marshal’s association will continue to use the auto66.com site. The new website will deal solely with road race information for the mount including advanced tickets which will shortly be able to book online and pay by paypal or credit/debit card. Those who want to book tickets for next season the usual way, the booking form can now be downloaded from the Auto66 website.

The club have also opened a facebook and twitter account and an instragram page:

OLIVER’S MOUNT HILL CLIMB A GREAT SUCCESS

The bike and car Hill Climb at Oliver’s Mount on 17th August 2014, turned out to be one of the best of the season. There was a really good turnout of officials and marshals and everything went according to plan, without any major incidents.

The highlight of the weekend was Warwick Davies who came along with a television production team and his family, to sample the sport and experience the paddock atmosphere. Warwick is currently making a television series of events he has attended, and this will be featured in one of them. During the lunch break, Warwick was driven up the hill at a reasonable speed, with one of the car competitors, Geoff Peters. On returning to the paddock we managed to push Warwick’s eyes back in as he said it was one of the most frightening experiences he’d ever had!!

Before the timed runs after lunch, Warwick took a leisurely ride up the hill with his family in his blue VW Campervan before leaving the venue for his next appointment.

There was a good entry and selection of cars, the many spectators seemed to enjoy themselves observing in the paddock and chatting to the riders and drivers.

We had a good selection of vehicles ranging from the spectacular 1913 Theophile Schneider at a whopping 10,000cc, lots of different sports cars and a good selection of single seaters.As you will see from the results the weather was kind with reasonable driving conditions all day.

The bikes also proved spectacular with everything from 125ccs to superbikes and three wheelers.

Super Teesside Speed Weekend

After a terrible entry the club decided to run the sprint alongside the road race on Sunday 6th July.

The morning started off damp and drizzly so the club decided to run the sprint first which everyone thoroughly enjoyed.

This event also counts towards the Northern Bike Speed Hill Climb and Sprint Championship.

Listed below is the 1st in each class:-

Class 1 – Michaela Tiernan

Class 2 – Nigel Critchley

Class 3 – Nick Colley

Class 4 – Keith Pringle

Class 5 – Sam Cartwright

Class 6 – Neil Waterhouse

Class 7 – Geoffrey Shackleton

Class 8 – Neil Paylor/Ian Paylor

The Road Race was run as one big class with 4 legs of 10 laps with the overall top 3 riders listed below:-

Race 1 – 1st – Nick Colley,   2nd – Keith Pringle,     3rd – Sam Cartwright

Race 2 – 1st – Nick Colley,   2nd – Keith Pringle,     3rd – Thomas Pugh

Race 3 – 1st – Nick Colley,   2nd – Keith Pringle,     3rd – Thomas Pugh

Race 4 – 1st – Nick Colley,   2nd – Keith Prinlge,     3rd – Thomas Pugh

The weekend turned out to be a huge success and this type of event will hopefully be run next year.
