So when do we think the first closed road hillclimb...

Will be?

I know the law has gone through, and the first rally is taking place in Clacton in April, but I wondered when the first closed road hillclimb would be? Anything in the pipeline?

While waiting, why not sample the delights of the closed road hillclimbs that already take place in Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Jersey, Guernsey or the Isle of Man?

Cheers
Mike

It probably will not be the first closed road Hill Climb, But Truro and District Motor Club have one planned for 15th and 16th September 2018 at Watergate Bay Cornwall.

I don't know many details, just that the start is somewhere near the Hotel. It's a long time since I have been there.

Honestly dont think the likes of BOC /Mac/ Hagly (Midland Lot) would even bother to try and organise one. I would love to blast around a closed road course though.

Feels like it needs somewhere that geographically currently lacks a venue. North East?

You could add Lancashire as we no longer have a hillclimb venue and plenty of suitable roads.
