Location: Kop Hill, Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire HP27 0LB,

Date: Dates TBC September 2016

Kop Hill is a steep climb just outside Princes Risborough, a small market town nestling at the foot of the Chilterns in the heart of rural Buckinghamshire. It rises 304 feet in 3,848 feet, with a gradient of 1 in 4 at its steepest.

At the turn of the 20th century, Kop Hill was just a dirt track up an open scarp. Its surface was loose, stony, hard and bumpy, with a nasty rut at the top that could tear off motorcycle tyres, and a hump that launched many drivers and riders into the air.

Today Kop Hill has a smooth tarmac surface with gentle bends, and its verges are lushly wooded. It starts with a gradual slope but by the halfway mark reaches a 1 in 6 gradient. The road then eases off before getting even steeper at 1 in 4 for a short section just before the summit, showing the power and grace of some of the classic machines in our revival and challenging the older cars and bikes simply to make it to the top. Kop Hill Climb's unique combination of beautiful location, historical significance and family-fun day out has made it a major fixture on the historic motor sport calendar, with many thousands of visitors raising tens of thousands for charity each year.
