Porsche Club Hillclimb Championship

Club Championship GalleriesThe New for 2015 Porsche Club Hillclimb Championship is for those seeking to compete at the highest level of Hillclimbs in Porsches.

Divided into two classes the championship is largely intended for purpose build Hillclimb cars, but can accommodate all sorts. Class 1 is for the most powerul or most heavily modified cars and allows slick tyres to be used with no penalty. Class 2 is for production type cars, using List 1A or List 1B tyres.

The Championship will run over six rounds, each of which will be a two-day event, with the exception of the final round at Prescott, which is a high-profile single day meeting.

In 2015 the Championship will take in the UK's premier Hillclimb venues at Shelsley Walsh, Loton Park, Harewood, Wiscombe Park, Gurston Down and Prescott.

Howells Clinches Championship Title with Loton Park Win

The 10th and final round of the Hillclimb Championship started at Loton Park with the forecast of rain. Understandably the first practice was damp and very slippery. Everyone was cautious, except Robert who put in a blistering run to open the weekend. There were three practice runs. All of which were damp and slippery.

Race day started a couple of degrees colder than practice, with a...

Gurston Down Abandoned - all to play for at Final Round

Heavy rain was forecast and there was a collective hope that this would not arrive until late morning. Sadly, and rather predictably as the Porsche’s readied themselves for the first practice the rain started. The conditions proved to be very different from Saturday with slower times. In the timed runs the conditions had deteriorated further with standing water in places. In the road...

Class Wins for Howells and Lancaster-Gaye at Wiscombe


After all the hot settled weather it came as quite a shock to be greeted with rain showers and cooler temperatures, with shorts being replaced with warmer attire. Even so, times were very competitive with Paul Howells and Tim Barber in the 43’s and David Hilton not far behind in the 44’s.and Robert Lancaster-Gaye leading class 2 in the 46’s All in...

Lancaster-Gaye and Ayres Battle at Harewood

Another glorious weekend at Harewood started with the Saturday practice runs on the recently re-laid tarmac, which came as quite a shock to some drivers. What appeared to be a lack of grip soon changed as the temperature rose during the morning and more rubber went down on the track.

Paul Howells, Tim Barber, Robert Lancaster-Gaye and Christian Ayres all driving up the hill to personal...

Wins For Howells And Lancaster-Gaye at Shelsley Walsh

Even before practice the weekend started well with this coverage from the team at Shelsley Walsh.

“The weekend will also be a round of the Porsche Hill Climb Championship with four mouth watering GT3s, an RSR, a GT3 RS and a GT3 Cup car to make many a supercar fan melt. …”

The track started damp on Saturday with mud at the edges washed onto the track from the...

Howells and Lancaster-Gaye take Loton Park Class wins

The first meeting of the 2018 Petro-Canada Lubricants Porsche Club National Hillclimb Championship season started bright and promising at Loton Park over the weekend of 19 / 20 May.

The first runs showed the track to be dusty and not providing as much grip as expected. As the day progressed other classes put down rubber and by the afternoon runs the track offered more grip. Everyone...

Champions Honoured at Porsche Awards Night

The Porsche Club Motorsport season formally drew to a close last Saturday night, November 11th, with the annual awards evening at the Hilton Puckrup Hall Hotel near Tewkesbury.

Howells Wraps Up 2017 Hillclimb Title

The final round of the Porsche Club Hill Climb Championship took place on a recently resurfaced track at Loton Park in Shropshire. Hagley Light Car Club has done a great job in making Loton Park, with its freely roaming deer and ‘kamikaze’ pheasants (both, fortunately, are kept clear of the track), into a super hill climbing venue, both for the driving and the great social...

Hillclimb Championship Hots Up With One Round To Go

The all 911 line-up in the Petro-Canada Porsche Club National Championship provided great action and a new class record.

Phil Price was in the running all weekend with his mighty 911 Turbo and took third in...
