New Closed Road Hill Climb in Cornwall

Watergate Bay Speed Climb Image

Thanks to some brand new legislation, Watergate Bay in Cornwall will play host to the first closed road hill climb in the UK this year. The legislation enables motor clubs to organise events and to close a section of road for them. This, of course, only works with the permission of the local councils and the MSA but it brings a new lease of life to small motorsport events and hopefully lots of fresh spectators and competitors.

The event will take place on the 15th and 16th of September at a beautiful location in Cornwall. A maximum number of 90 cars will be allowed to compete, which should give spectators a great range of cars and times to enjoy.

It seems since the new option to organise events like this was announced last year, this is the 3rd permit to be granted. With any luck, this is just the beginning. The idea of more events springing up across the UK is really exciting because it allows local people to turn up and enjoy some real motorsport right on their doorstep. Many will hopefully go on to go to more events at tracks as well as closed road races. This kind of event can also provide the inspiration for many younger people to take up the sport.

We provide fire suppression systems for a huge range of motorsport classes from Autotest to F1, and hill climbing has always been something we all enjoy. We work with 100s of customers who run their own hill climb cars so we know the cars and the needs to the drivers very well. For many people, it is a case of installing an extinguisher in their weekend fun road car or even their day-to-day road car. For others it is about working with a specific custom built car or bike or bringing something historic up to date in order to be allowed to race. Whatever the car, we can help make sure it has a world class fire suppression system on board.

If you would like to discuss your vehicle then get in touch with our friendly team today. If you are new to motorsport, please feel free to call us and ask about MSA regulations and what you may need in order to enter a hill climb near you!
