Auto 66 run the last Hill Climb of 2017 this weekend, on Sunday 8th October and it is certainly shaping up to be a big event. Running the final round of the Northern Hill Climb Bike Championships, we have 80+ entries for this meeting.
Currently leading the Championship is Terry Hall from Knaresborough on his KTM FX-F. Following closely behind is Bridlington man Chris Graily on his Honda CBR RR in second place. Third place is Neil Waterhouse from Grimsby on a Honda NC30. We also have some other familiar faces lined up for the meeting, including the likes of Pete Smith, Dave Ward, Rocko Ruckledge, Richard Grisdale, Charles Rich Pitman, Julian Tillotson and Father and Son Duo, Len and Nick Auckland. Up to date championship standings can be found on the ‘Road/Club Racing & Hill Climbs’ dropdown box of this website.
Oliver’s Mount Hill Climb produces a first class competition for entrants, including classes from scooters to 1300cc bikes, supermotos, sidecars and trikes. The ‘Run What Ya Brung’ class is also increasing in popularity, meeting after meeting. The circuit is one of the best in the country, with competitors starting in the paddock, sweeping right onto the Farm Bends complex towards Mere Hairpin, up Quarry Hill and turning a sharp left at the Esses to finish on the slip road which leads to Druries Hairpin.
We are aiming for a 10am start, with two practice runs and 6 runs, hoping to round off the event at approximately 4:30pm.
Spectators are asked to use the main entrance off Filey Road to enter the circuit. Tickets are £10 for adults with under 15’s going free. This ticket price includes free parking and a free programme of events. There is an open paddock too, so spectators can come down and walk amongst the riders, taking a closer look at their machines.
The Hill Climb only requires a part road closure so access can still be gained off Filey Road and the Mountside entrance to the Mount, meaning that access up to the Memorial and Oliver’s on the Mount Restaurant will not be disrupted.
If you have any questions about this event, be it from a spectator or competitor point of view, please do not hesitate to contact the office on 01723 373000, we will be more than happy to help out.
