Oliver’s Mount, Scarborough organisers have confirmed their intention to hold a Hill Climb meeting from the 17th-18th July.
At present due to the fluctuating Covid-19 situation, these are provisional dates and it’s more than worth pointing out what was recently stated via the official Oliver’s Mount Racing Twitter page.
“Just to remind you of our 100% refund guarantee for any events cancelled due to CV19.”
Returning to a more positive tone, it’s good to hear that hill climb action is hoped to return to North Yorkshire’s ‘Mini TT’.
The last time I ventured to a hill climb at Scarborough was in October of 2019. The event attracted entries from Mount stalwarts such as Keith Pringle, Supersport class winner Brian Greenfield, Fran Cowton, local favourite Paul Marley, Neil Martin plus Oliver’s Mount Racing Joint Director Andy Hayes.
Machinery wise, there was a great mix of unusual, high spec, yesteryear, two stroke, three wheeling steeds taking to the tight, twisty, world famous race circuit.
Road Racing News photographer Steve Rial filmed during the meeting a series of videos which collectively showcases the uniqueness, authenticity of hill climb action at the ‘Mount’.
