Hagerty, one of the world’s largest automotive lifestyle brands, is famous for its leading insurance products and multi-platform automotive content, but it also offers a diverse and exciting calendar of global events.
On 28th May, Hagerty will bring together an eclectic mix of cars to tackle the historic hillclimb course at Shelsley Walsh. Since 1905 Shelsley Walsh has played host to heroes of motorsport, making it the oldest motor sport event still held on its original course.
50 competition and road cars have been hand-picked to put on a show for visitors, but for those who prefer to be a part of the action, Hagerty offers the chance for guests to drive their own car at speed at one of the most memorable motorsport locations in the UK. For non-driving spectators, the event offers a full day of hillclimbing, quality food and drink and a host of additional entertainment.
The popular Hagerty Classic Car Valuation Arena returns for the Shelsley Walsh hillclimb event, offering vehicle owners a chance to have their car appraised and valued accurately. Live vehicle inspections will be carried out by experts from the Hagerty Valuations team and the knowledgeable appraisers from auction house, Manor Park Classics.
Tickets are priced from just £15 for general admission, which includes access to the paddock. For those who want to drive their car up the hill, an exclusive package offers three runs up the hill, as well as access to the Hagerty ‘Driver’s Enclosure’, complete with complimentary food and drink and access to the grandstand, for just £99. Guests can enjoy the Driver’s Enclosure for as little as £60, without the need to partake in the hillclimb.
Gates open at 8.30am, with the first cars away from the start line at 9.00am. Tickets are strictly limited across all categories.
Mark Roper, Managing Director of Hagerty International, said “This is the first Hagerty hillclimb event to be held in the UK, and we are offering our guests a chance to be at the heart of the action. Hagerty has long championed for classic vehicles to be used as intended and what better reason than to drive the hill at Shelsley Walsh, one of the oldest motorsport venues in the country? In addition, driving guests may choose to take advantage of our recently launched, specialist motorsport product for peace of mind when driving their cherished vehicle up the hill.”
