I was looking forward all winter to the new season of the Harewood Speed Hillclimb to kick off. When I woke up early on Sunday morning the weather looked pretty promising so I knew it was going to be a good day for racing, very mild with some cold winds but definitely good for dense oxygen intake to help the cars produce some good power.
It’s always a mixed bag at the hill climb, so many different types of car of varying ages coming together to compete. Another thing which I enjoy about the hill climb is the atmosphere, it’s always super relaxed, you walk around the paddock and everyone is casually preparing their cars ready to race with a smile on their faces. Also most of the competitors are more than happy to talk to you about their pride and joy and give you hints and tips about how to enter and what is required.
Here are a few of my favourite cars from the day.
