This coming Sunday, 13th March, Bromyard Speed Festival are staging an all day event at Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb, near Stanford Bridge.
Shelsley Walsh is the world’s oldest motoring venue and is steeped in history. You can read more about it here. If you are a motoring devotee then you won’t need telling that it’s a fantastic place to visit. If you are new to motor sport then this is an opportunity to sample the atmosphere for yourself. Maybe you have enjoyed BSF’s street events in Bromyard in 2016 and 2017 and are curious to dig a bit deeper?
There will be around 140 cars and bikes at the event, all interesting and eye-catching in their way. The quantity and range of vehicles will be similar to those seen on the streets of Bromyard in the past two years. They will be parked up in the paddock area between runs so there is ample opportunity to inspect them up close and chat with the owners and drivers.
In our street event we have limit speeds to 30 mph for obvious safety reasons. At Shelsley the vehicles will be able to travel at greater speed. This is not a competitive event but there will be no limit, other than common sense, on the speed the vehicles can go up the hill climb track.
Vehicles will set off individually in sequence and it is expected that each will get two runs in the moring session and two more in the afternoon.
There are spectator viewing areas up and around the course which will get you close to the action. There will also be some static vehicles to drool over, various trade stands to enjoy and bars, restaurants and catering vans to ward off hunger and thirst!
Parking is £10 per vehicle (NOT perperson) and entry to the course and the paddock is free. You can book parking online, which is of great help to our volunteers and reduces queues at the gate. If you don’t manage to book online you can pay on the gate but please help us by having the right money – £10 per vehicle.
Any surplus we make will be shared among charities in or local to Bromyard, as in previous years.
