If all goes well i'll be there about 10.30'ish.
Weather forecast forecast looks great!:surprised:

What a great day - fab weather, good company. Still think the wooden three wheeler should have won the kit car prize though. :)

I'll post some pics once I've downloaded them.

Great day and three Sportsters at one event. Although the event wan't well publicised there were some interesting cars there. I also got home in the dry - but then I only live 10 minutes away :-)

I've not been before but according to an ex-colleague its an excellent day out.

I just need to do the 500 mile running in service on the Sportster today....

I went to Kop Hill climb yesterday and well, what can I say, it was absolutely superb with 100's of cars from 1903 to 2012 of all types and shapes.

Outside of Goodwood I have not see so many exotic and rare cars worth millions of pounds. And this event had cars that you would never see at Goodwood!!

Me too, it seems to be the best kept secret classic car event!! It's not listed in the classic mags I read so you seem to have to know about it.

Amazingly most of the entrants seemed to be very local.
Take a look at the entrants listing...
http://www.kophillclimb.info/listing.html

And it was very well organised by a bunch of volunteers.

denniswpearce 24th September 2012 11:32

Blimey, a massive list. Almost as big as the Classic Car Show at the NEC.

Must make a note of it

Just a reminder that the Kopp Hill, hillclimb is on again this year on 21st/22nd September.
http://www.kophillclimb.org.uk/
Last year it was great show with many rare classic cars and a few new super cars. Its a great day out!!
I'm not yet sure if I'll make it myself but if you've not been before, this is a highly recommended show.

If your not sure, take a look at my pictures from last year...

I said to myself last year after seeing your pics Peter, that I must go to this years event. So I will be there.
Just hope I get the same weather as you.

MartinClan 3rd September 2013 10:46

I am also planning to go on the Saturday
