Shelsley Walsh – the oldest operational motorsport venue in the world
Shelsley Walsh is the oldest motor sport venue in continuous use in the world. First used in 1905, it is older than Indianapolis, Le Mans or Monza. Brooklands has been and gone, but Shelsley Walsh is still here, as old as the sport but as modern as today. The course is 1000 metres long and rises in height by 100 metre. The record for the fastest ascent is held by Martin Groves who completed the course in 22.58 Seconds on 17th August 2008.
The hillclimb has weekend events open to the public throughout the year – details are on their website and in our events list.
