bid to take on a shere climb

Two ex­tra places up for grabs to aid lo­cal char­i­ties

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week - shere­hill­

Al­though en­tries for this year’s Shere Hill Climb are al­ready of­fi­cially closed, two ex­tra places have been made avail­able and are now open for bid­ding for char­ity.

The two suc­cess­ful bid­ders will be able to take part in the fifth run­ning of the event in the Sur­rey Hills on 3 Septem­ber, along­side 150 other driv­ers. All prof­its from the event will go to lo­cal good causes; the event has raised more than £50,000 to date.

The two ex­tra places have been re­leased in con­junc­tion with Cherry Trees chil­dren’s respite care home and Phyl­lis Tuck­well Hospice fam­ily care ser­vice. Po­ten­tial en­trants need to nom­i­nate which char­ity they wish to drive for on the day and pro­vide de­tails of the car they will drive (with a pho­to­graph) along with their bid. Th­ese must be re­ceived by 30 June and be sent to: info@ shere­hill­

The cur­rent 150-car grid in­cludes a 1907 Ber­liet, Ford Mus­tang, Lagonda, Alfa Romeo GTAm, Ford Cortina, Nis­san Sky­line and McLaren MP4-12C. There will also be car dis­plays, among them pre­sen­ta­tions by the Daim­ler SP250 and AC Co­bra clubs.

From a stand­ing start in 2013 shere Hill climb, near Guildford, sur­rey has be­come one of the most suc­cess­ful hill climbs in the Uk.
