Yes it is that time again track time at Retro Rides Gathering is now available
So if you want to apply for the hill you need to send an email to : [email protected]
With the following info
Details of your car: (type, modifications, anything interesting we should know)
Pictures of the car: (showing reg number)
Which session you want: Either Morning or Afternoon (can't do both)
Where you heard about the booking process: (eg RR Forum, Facebook, Instagram etc)
Hill time is £35 for either morning or afternoon session. You can't pre-book for both. You will require a show entry ticket
Vehicle must be Pre 1992*
On the day any driver will need to have with them
- Valid Driving licence (Photocard or old style Paper one)
- MOT (Unless exempt under UK requirements ie pre 1960)
- Insurance certificate or cover note
The requirement for MOT does not apply to continental registered cars – but they do need to bring their equivalent certificate
Helmets - Mandatory (please bring your own if you have one)
It's your head in it - if it's suitable for use on a motorcycle it's OK for this event - the hill is not timed or in any way a competition but we need to comply with shelsley requirements. Whilst there are a few helmets available for hire a fairly large deposit is required on the day so eliminate the need for all that by bringing you own helmet.
Vehicles can have one driver and one passenger – so two people max
No age or height restriction on passengers but they reserve the right to review this on the day and they must be wearing suitable seatbelts that fit properly.
Seat belts if fitted are to be worn.
Cars arriving on trailers require permission in advance – we have very limited space for trailers and quite frankly they are a PITA to deal with so don’t think we will automatically say yes to a trailered car – we won’t.
Confirmation of conditions – ie car entered is one that runs up the hill – no substitutions of a modern – this would result in a refund of your session cost (Please note a retro alternative would be acceptable)
Apply by email (please note all emails will have a response within 48 hrs so please check your spam)
If accepted (we have limited spaces) then you will get a confirmation email with payment instructions – you will be given a specific payment Ref (we can take a variety of payment methods)
Once payment is accepted then closer to the date a pack will be sent out with detailed instructions on where to go on the morning of the show
We aim for you to get three runs up the hill, and in the past have been good at this (particularly at Shelsley), this is however time and attendee behavior conditioned. Morning and Afternoon sessions are the same length.
*Note: there is some wiggle room with this, cars that were being manufactured before 1992 as an example, so do your application if you think you can squeeze in and let us work out what fits on the hill
