A record £75,000 raised for charity

The amazing amount of £75,000 has been raised by the event this year.

John Biggs, the organiser of the event, said
"I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who visited the event, and made it possible to raise such a fantastic sum for charity: the spectators who came in their 1000's, the wonderful support from sponsors and exhibitors, and of course the entrants, who brought their cherished vehicles for us to see. A big thank you also to the hundreds of volunteers, without whom the event just couldn't take place. I think Kop Hill Climb is the best value event for £10 anywhere in Buckinghamshire."

There were record visitor numbers of around 16,500, and near perfect weather for the two-day extravaganza of cars, motorcycles and the special festival atmosphere that attracts car enthusiasts and families alike.

Hits of the show

This year we had our most spectacular collection of historic race cars running the hill including the awesome Napier-Railton bringing history to life from the Brooklands Museum and the 1922 Isle of Man TT winning Sunbeam Grand Prix Car.

The Peter Lewis Trophy, voted for by you, as the car most would like to take home, went to Ian Tomlinson's very rare and beautiful Triumph Italia which he had brought all the way from Kendal in the Lake District.

The Soapbox event was the biggest yet with 18 teams. The new "Rookie Racers" won the inaugural Beaumont Cup in memory of our dear friend and organiser Andy Beaumont.

If that didn't entertain the children then the steam fair and helter-skelter certainly did, providing a beautiful and iconic look to the children's entertainment area.

Whatever your highlight was, we hope you had a very enjoyable time with us this year.

Looking ahead to 2016

Dates are now set for the 17th and 18th of September 2016.

We'll be opening the entries for the hill run or classic and club displays next April. On the hill run we only accept entries with pre-1976 vehicles and the older vehicles get priority. Keep an eye out on this web page or better still subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on Facebook for the announcements.


Spectator tickets will be available from March.

If you'd like to be a part of the team we are always looking for new volunteers who want to do their bit for the community. The organising team are already working on next year's event, listening to your feedback on what you thought was great, and the areas we could improve.
