Description (Click to toggle Visibility)

Harewood speed Hillclimb is a hillclimb near the village of Harewood, West Yorkshire, England. The track can be found on the A659 between Harewood village and Collingham, north of Leeds. In addition to national events, it hosts rounds of the British Hill Climb Championship, a Classic & Historic Hillclimb and an event that includes bikes. Around 11 meetings are organised between April and September each year by the British Automobile Racing Club Yorkshire Centre.

The first event on the track took place on September 16, 1962, and Best Time of the Day was set at 51.61s by Tony Lanfranchi driving an Elva Mk VI. This was on the original 'Short Course'. The first R.A.C. Hill Climb Championship event was held in September, 1964.[1] In the mid 80's the track was extended to 1,584 yards (1,448 m), making it the longest British hillclimb. As of 2010, the outright hill record holder was Martin Groves, whose time of 49.13 seconds was set on 4 July 2010.

Hi Bob - Met you at Shelsley on Saturday. The simulation of Shelsley Walsh hillclimb is absolutely terrific!

I do hope you can come to some licence agreement with the MAC - (by the way I misheard you when we talking about this - I thought you said MSA - the Motor Sport Association nee RAC - It was them I was sounding off about not the Midland Automobile Club!)

Anyway totally knocked out by your Shelsley - Can't even start to imagine how it works

All the Best Rob Shipley

My game crashes everytime I try to run this track! Any tips or am I missing anything?

The mod looks great, however whichever vehicle I use it is pulled to the left side of the track and in order to drive the course I'm on maximum right hand lock for most of it! I've tried re-calibrating my wheel and have also tried a different track in case it was something I set incorrectly, but i think its a fault in your mod.

Aww damn! I was going to start working on my version of the track soon! Guess i can postpone

Arrrgh man! You have done such a good job in the way it looks but the road needs tweaking my friend. You have left BTB at 5 meter spacing on the polygons and it makes the corners look like hexagons. Such a shame as the buildings and the detail is really good. Hopefully you might bring us a new version.
