Hagerty Hill Climb soaks up the sun at Shelsley Walsh

The second Hagerty Hill Climb at Shelsley Walsh on 11 May provided a hugely successful sunsoaked day. Looking to provide a non competitive environment (that at times looked very competitive!), the event was supported by Sustain Classic Fuel, which offered free sustainable fuel to all participants having a crack at the oldest motor sport venue still using its original course.

The paddock was incredibly eclectic, awash with everything from Radicals and specialist single-seater hillclimbers to hot-hatches and Yankee muscle cars, but the biggest stars on the hill ranged from a works rally-spec Audi quattro Sport and Lancia Stratos to a 30hp Fiat 500.

Sustain Classic Fuel offered expert advice on the use of sustainable fuels throughout the day, as well offering 10-litres of Sustain fuel, free of charge, to all competitors who wished to use the fuel in their own vehicles. 

Mark Roper, Managing Director of Hagerty International, said: ‘The 2024 Hagerty Hill Climb was an amazing event, with weather as stunning as the cars it was our best Hill Climb yet. This event encapsulates what Hagerty is all about, with a range of vehicles ranging from modern-classic daily drivers to important cars from motorsport history, all being used and enjoyed as intended, and everyone leaving with a smile on their faces.’
