View Full Version : Harewood Speed Hillclimb

3rd January 2010, 05:06 PM

I have been sent this via the forum, so putting it here as only seems right.

Just wondered if any one was interested, all details as below

"I wondered whether any MR2 Mk1 Club members would be interested in a visit to Yorkshire's most beautifully located motorsports venue?

Harewood Speed Hillclimb occupies a stunning setting overlooking the Wharfe valley, between Leeds & Harrogate.

Events are held each month from April to September, on the UK's longest permanent hill climb course, with some competitors exceeding 100mph during their timed runs. The spectating areas are excellent, it's a great place for a picnic, but catering is also provided at each event.

For recognised Car Club members there is a pre-booking discount of 20%, making individual entrance costs just £8.00 per person, or a Season Ticket for all 11 events is available for only £35.00!!

If you could post details on your website notice board or in the club newsletter it would be great - For full information please go to www.harewoodhill.com (http://www.harewoodhill.com) or contact me direct.

Here's to a Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year for all your members

Best regards

Tony Cooper"

Cheers Debs. :+:

I'm up for an outing to this to one of the summer events, anyone else?

Some great roads in the surrounding area too so I could possibly organise a run also!

Have received some more information, on this years events as below:-

"Good morning Deborah,

You were good enough to reply to my email on January 3rd, inviting MR2 Mk1 Club members to Harewood Speed Hillclimb.

I wondered if any members had expressed an interest in visiting, as if you can supply numbers and the event date/s I can send you vouchers for 20% off the spectating entrance fee of £10.00.

The full list of dates is below – if any members would like to compete they can now complete their entry online at the website : http://www.harewoodhill.com

I look forward to seeing lots more MR2 Mk 1’s at Harewood this year!

Best regards
