The Felday Daimler which won the 1963 British Hill Climb Championship will be running at this year’s Bromyard Speed Festival On Tour at Shelsley Walsh on 8th April. This is appropriate as the Felday ran there many times.
Shelsley Walsh is the oldest motor sport venue in the world still using the original course. Since 12th August 1905 it has attracted world-class drivers such as Campbell, Segrave, Caracciola, Bira, Stuck and Collins. In recent times drivers such as John Surtees, Sir Stirling Moss, Andy Priaulx, Derek Bell & Hans-Joachim Stuck have also driven on the famous Shelsley tarmac.
The event is a non-competitive hill climb, and the intention is to give drivers & riders who have supported the Bromyard Speed Festival over the last two years, and a number of newcomers, the opportunity of driving at the world’s oldest competition venue.
After the 2016 & 2017 Festivals the organisers donated considerable sums to a number of local charities, and the intention is to do the same this year. BSF returns to the streets of Bromyard in 2019.
