This may be of interest to club members.

A brief summary of the details of the forthcoming Yorkshire Motorsport Festival to be held in June.

“The Yorkshire Motorsport Festival will be held over the weekend of 25th to 27th June near Holmfirth, West Yorkshire.

The competition element will be the Wolfstones Hillclimb over a 0.8 mile closed public road to the west of Holmfirth. Friday will see Bentleys compete with two practice & two timed runs.

There are a number of ‘star cars’ doing demonstration runs, or on display. These include an 1930s ex-Le Mans Aston Martin team car, the 1980s ex-Gerry Marshall Aston Martin V8, the 1970s ex-John Pope Vauxhall Viva GT Aston Martin-engined Special Saloon, an ex-works Sunbeam Tiger rally car, plus a number of others.

The weekend has mostly pre-1986 saloon & sportscars competing – again over two practice & timed runs. The exact entry will be confirmed closer to the event.

A whole array of displays & activities will support the hilllclimb, from Hot Rods, car clubs, vintage tractors – over the hill from the David Brown factory; bulldozers & classic plant plus food & music festivals, fashion shows, shopping, kids’ activities & competitions.

Free camping is available for officials.
