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 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!!

From this....

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.

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...

Just hope I get the same weather as you.
