Final hurrah for Holme Moss Hill Climb

The fifth and final centenary celebration – it sort of makes sense, honest! – of the Holme Moss Hill Climb in Yorkshire will take place on 10 August.

The original public road event in the West Riding took place from 1920-24 and attracted stars of the calibre of Malcolm Campbell, Sir Henry Segrave, Eddie Hall, Archie Frazer-Nash and Raymond Mays, whose winning 1924 climb remains the Hill Record in perpetuity.

Since 2020, each of those five runnings organised by the long-gone Huddersfield and Bradford Joint Motor Club, has been the subject of a revival, which will now come to an end.

The centenary events have been put together by enthusiasts using The Fleece pub as a gathering point and raising money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance. The Fleece has a dedicated paddock, fully signed, for cars. Nothing is needed, no pre-registration or signing on, and organisers ask only for a donation of £10 in return for which you get the programme and a chance to drive the hill.

Lead organiser, Guy Loveridge said: ‘This year, being the last of the Centenary Events, will be bigger and better than ever! We will have live music from The Bluebirds close harmony trio and a longer event, running from 10am until 4pm. 

‘Road legal cars get to run up and down the hill. We have a souvenir programme, event T-Shirts and a raffle to win five wonderful prizes, including a signed Nick Mason Pink Floyd album, a first edition copy of Innes Ireland’s All Arms and Elbows and other items. It’s a great day – come and join us!”
