Kop Hill Climb - Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire By Philip Suter
Kop Hill Climb - This weekend event is now being held in September every year in Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire. Kop Hill is a steep hill that leaves the town from the fire station end and heads towards the Hampden Woods and Green Hailey.
The first recorded event was in 1910 and as a result of a minor accident involving a spectator it was banned by the RAC in 1925. In 1999 there was a commemorative run up this famous hill as part of Princes Risborough Festival.
Then in 2009 the revival of the Kop Hill Climb started and has been running ever since, raising money for charity over the weekend. It is a great place to visit and see these historic cars and bikes and is becoming very poular (but on a much smaller scale) than the Goodwood Revival.
