Kop Hill Climb still planned for 110th anniversary

The team planning a popular Buckinghamshire event say they are still planning to go ahead.

Due to happen on 19th September, the Kop Hill Climb is due to celebrate 110 years since the first event.

Many events and festivals have been called off for the summer, due to coronavirus, but those behind the Climb, near Princes Risborough, are determined to go ahead.

In a statement, they said:

"At a recent meeting of the Kop Hill Climb Organising Committee, it was decided that we would continue to plan to deliver the event on September 19/20 this year, subject of course to the then prevailing Government rulings.

"2020 marks the 110th year since the first-ever Kop Hill Climb in 1910, so is another important milestone since the first revival of the event in 2009.

"It also offers us an opportunity to add to the £753,000 that KHC has raised for local good causes and projects over the last eleven years."

The booking system for applications to run the hill or display motor cars and motor bikes is now open for both pre- and post-war vehicles.

This can be found on their website.

Applications can be made in the knowledge that all monies are refundable if they are forced to cancel the event at a later stage.
