Barbon Hillclimb

to enter go to www.rallies.info

11th June 2022

This extremely popular annual event is a qualifying round for several local & regional championships and attracts many “Club” competitors to this exciting venue. But don’t think that you’ll see less spectacular cars at this event. There’ll be an excellent variety of cars including single-seat racing cars and some surprisingly powerful saloon and rally cars too. All this and a fascinating selection of historic cars as well.

As each year passes, we attract even more championships which results in 80 – 90 competitors to this meeting

16th July 2022 This is the second of our two annual visits to Barbon Park and once again we welcome some of the quickest regional competitors all aiming to win their class, or at least set a personal best time.

Unfortunately, the number of events in the British Hillclimb Championship has been reduced this year and Barbon is one of the venues that has lost a round of the championship. It’s not all bad news however as this should mean we attract even more competitors to this event in an even greater variety of cars.

What hasn’t changed is the determination of each competitor to set a new personal record on the hill, so you can be sure to see many cars & drivers competing for positions in their own championships.

BOB MILLOY (3 Aug 1949 – 15 Feb 2022)

We are saddened to report the sudden death of Bob, for many years KLMC Secretary and Vice Chairman.

 He will be known to every rally crew as the chap who thrust a microphone in front of you at the end of an event, ready to hear your stories from the day’s competition and transmitting to the assembled spectators. He also commentated on stage rallies at Oulton Park and hillclimbs at Barbon, broadcasting a wealth of information about every competitor.

Living in South Cumbria but originally from Cheshire, Bob was a regular road rally navigator in the 1970’s and also competed on car trials in a Clan Crusader. Later he could often be found co-driving on stage rallies. He was also a regular race marshal at Oulton Park, and a MSA Steward at events across the northern half of the UK.

He was an official of Stockport Motor Club until his move northwards, where he became an official of Kirkby Lonsdale Motor Club and secretary of their stage rallies.

As Chairman of ANWCC he regularly attended the Regional Committee meetings of MUK, forthright in his views and always willing to discuss all aspects of motor sport with the ANWCC officials.

At last week’s AGM of the Association Bob stood down to make way for a younger person, having passed on much of his knowledge and wisdom to his successor. He will be truly missed by the many who knew him.

Details of the funeral will be published on our Facebook page when known.
