The members-only practice days on 4 and 5 April will see drivers getting back out on the course at Loton Park following a period of intense work by a team of volunteers to get the course race-ready for the coming season. Members can now download the 2015 regulations on the HDLCC website.
Set in the beautiful surroundings of the deer park of Sir Michael Leighton’s stately home at Alberbury, near Shrewsbury, the course is known not only as very technical and challenging, but also as one of the longest hill climbs in the UK. The volunteers’ work has included improving safety areas on the well-known Museum Bend and replacing tyres on the safety barrier, as well as painting rumble strips and buildings.
The HDLCC currently has in excess of 500 members throughout the UK and as far afield as Switzerland and Africa, running a number of events throughout the season. The first competitive events take place on 18 and 19 April when the club will welcome Jaguars, Bugatti, Reliant and Morgan cars together with competitors in the British Motorcycle Hill Climb Championship.
