Barbon Hill Climb
Liverpool Motor Club Regional Multi-Championship meetings
11th June 2022
This extremely popular annual event is a qualifying round for several local & regional championships and attracts many “Club” competitors to this exciting venue. But don’t think that you’ll see less spectacular cars at this event. There’ll be an excellent variety of cars including single-seat racing cars and some surprisingly powerful saloon and rally cars too. All this and a fascinating selection of historic cars as well.
As each year passes, we attract even more championships which results in 80 – 90 competitors to this meeting – see our Calendar page for more details.
16th July 2022 – This is the second of our two annual visits to Barbon Park and once again we welcome some of the quickest regional competitors all aiming to win their class, or at least set a personal best time.
Barbon Hill Climb….more information
Unfortunately, the number of events in the British Hillclimb Championship has been reduced this year and Barbon is one of the venues that has lost a round of the championship. It’s not all bad news however as this should mean we attract even more competitors to this event in an even greater variety of cars.
What hasn’t changed is the determination of each competitor to set a new personal record on the hill, so you can be sure to see many cars & drivers competing for positions in their own championships.
There are lots more photos of the Barbon Hillclimbs over the years on our Facebook page, and you can join in and post your own photos on our Friends of Barbon Hillclimb page too.
The Barbon Hillclimb course is situated in the parkland grounds of Barbon Manor, with spectacular views out over the surrounding countryside. The spectator gates open at 8 am, and the first practice is due to start at around 9.15 am. You’ll be hard-pressed to tell the difference between practice and the competition runs – they’re just as exciting and only a stopwatch will show the difference in times! Apart from a break for lunch, the action should continue right through until late afternoon, generally finishing between 4.30 & 5 pm. Hot & cold refreshments are available on-site throughout the day for competitors and spectators.
