Details for Harewood Speed Hill Climb

Harewood Speed Hill Climb is a dedicated circuit set at Harewood near to Wetherby in North Yorkshire. Regular speed climb events are held and both spectators and entries are welcome. Refreshments and car parking are available.

This is motorsport with a difference as Harewood is the longest hill climb course in the UK and with speeds reaching 130mph, it's not for the faint hearted.

To enjoy this sport you do need to be a member of one of the many motorsport clubs  and this entitles you to enter a large number of races. You will need a Motor Sports Licence and you can enter any type of car. The type of car, its tyres, engine size etc. will determine as to which category you will race in.  Obviously safety is of utmost importance so make sure you have a helmet, fire resistant overalls and gloves.

There are many types of races through the season and if you don't actually fancy taking part in the driving, you can become a Marshall which is another way to be part of the sport. You will receive on the job training which is to a very high standard, Marshalls who have already passed the training often come just to make sure they are up to speed, if you pardon the pun. Being a Marshall is voluntary but is very rewarding in its own right.

Harewood offers you instruction with one of the schools many instructors and it's a full day which starts of gently with a cup of tea and a chat. You will walk round the course, you will drive around the course and at the end of the day you will receive your certificate, so if this is for you, get booked in and get racing.
