On September 16th-17th the Kop Hill Climb will descend on Princes Risborough.
This year's event celebrates exotic cars with a selection of post-war Ferraris roaring up the hill to finish off the usual eclectic range of cars from the last century.
Since its revival 9 years ago, the Kop Hill Climb has raised over £440,000 for local community projects and charities.
Today, the Kop Hill Climb's unique combination of a beautiful location, historical significance and family-fun day out has made it a major fixture on the historic motor sport calendar, with many thousands of visitors raising tens of thousands of pounds for charity each year.
Kop Hill is a steep climb just outside Princes Risborough, a small market town nestling at the foot of the Chilterns in the heart of rural Buckinghamshire. It has a gradient of 1 in 4 at its steepest.
There is still room in the display area within the paddock, which is reserved for pre-war vehicles and early classics. To reserve a place in the paddock you need to pre-book, and of course, spectators are welcome to purchase tickets for the whole day!
The Soapbox Challenge!
The intention is to provide an extra-curricular activity for children aged 10 to 17 to design, construct, maintain and compete in a racing event for soapbox carts.
The challenge is to compete on a gravity powered course in the paddock over two days. The team travelling furthest wins.
