Saltburn Hill Climb

Saltburn Hill Climb

Hundreds of spectators turn out at a historic hill climb and motor gathering event.

The annual Saltburn vintage hill climb takes place on Sunday 8th September - with numerous classic cars and motorbikes taking part.

The event - a non-competitive speed and time trial for vintage cars and motorcycles - had run as a competitive event for many years until 2004 when it was halted due to clauses in road safety legislation barring such trials on public highways.

Supporters of the historic motor racing event have since campaigned tirelessly for its resurrection.

And it seems their hard work may pay off later this year - with the legislation possibly to be overturned this autumn.

As well as the gathering, where vehicles from the early 1900s up to 1975 are on display, the cars and motorbikes also make the quarter-mile hill climb to Rushpool Hall one by one.
