Volunteer marshals and stewards required!
Sunday 25th September, 2022.
Applications for the 2022 Firle Hill Climb Revival may now be submitted. The application form and regulations form are attached to the bottom of this page. All fresh applicants must sign and return both forms. Applications which do not include a signed copy of the regulations form will not be considered.
Due to the late cancellation of the hill climb in 2021, those selected for that hill climb have been able to carry over their places in 2022. Early indications suggest that available places for this year's hill climb will therefore be very low.
Successful 2021 applicants need do nothing, you will have already been contacted by FHCR and will be contacted again once the application window closes at the end of June 2022.
New applicants for 2022 will therefore be notified of one of the following by Friday 8th July 2022. Either that a place in the paddock has been offered or that they will be placed upon the reserve list. It is fair to assume that many new applicants will be disappointed this year.
The fee of £50.00 per car remains the same as in 2019. Once again all road going/road legal cars first registered before January 1st 1990 may apply.
It is early days yet but we have asked to be considered for inclusion into the long established favourite that is the Hellingly Festival of Transport. Who knows but if this does not materialise then we shall have a traditional Sunday meet at one of our favourite beer houses. It will be the height of summer and scalding hot, so let's keep it chilled and easy going!Read More
Yes we shall be back this year! It came close to being broken but it wasn't quite so we haven't fixed it. Just as it has always been. The participating field is largely the same as it would have been in 2021 were it not cancelled at the every last. More to follow on how applications will work this year but another selection of superb vehicles will take to our hill.Read More
It was a touch damp last year when a few of us met atop our hill to perform the handover of the cash that was most kindly donated in 2021. We shall do the same again but hopefully in a slightly drier fashion! Followed by lunch a a suitable hostelry. This will not replace the visits to CHEC and The Southfield Trust but not everyone can make those weekday meets.Read More
This event was due to take place back in the March of 2020. Can't think now what happened but something came along to spoil our plans! It will follow the same format as the last Spring tour with a hearty breakfast at the superb Six Bells before heading off on a substantial tour. It is looking like we may end up with a picnic as no one wants to cater for a large group of car drivers! As before there will be charge to cover the cost of breakfast but that is it. As much as we want to raise funds for charity we also want to get back out there and enjoy life.Read More
Please be aware that the BBQ man has disappeared and that we shall now be looked after by The Seasoned Sausage Co. that usually cater for us at the hill climb. We meet at the Boship for a tour before ending our journey at Firle Place. Taking advantage of Henry Gage's very kind invitation to meet him at his fantastic ancestral home. Carefully avoiding the sheep as we navigate the impressive drive up to the house where we will enjoy a BBQ and a trip around the grand house. It is a pretty good photo opportunity too. Just let Rob know if you want to come along. Unless we find a kind benefactor there will be an at cost charge for the food and drink!Read More
