The location is just N of Kirby Lonsdale on the eastern side of the Lune and is lovely on a nice day but if wet there is nowhere to hide! The event is a British Hillclimb Ch’ship ones and they are serious!
The Barbon Hillclimb course is situated in the grounds of Barbon Manor, with spectacular views out over the surrounding countryside. The spectator gates open at 8am, and the first practice is due to start by around 9.30am. Apart from a break for lunch, the action should continue right through until late afternoon, generally finishing between 4.30 & 5pm. Hot & cold refreshments are available on site throughout the day for competitors and spectators.
From the M6, take the A65 East to Kirkby Lonsdale, turn left onto the A683 for exactly 3 miles, then right to Barbon Village. Then follow the local signs to the venue.
From South Yorkshire, take the A65 past Settle to Kirkby Lonsdale, turn right onto the A683 for 3 miles & then turn right again to Barbon village and follow the signs to the venue.
Using a sat nav? The venue doesn’t have its own postcode, but you can use LA6 2LJ and follow the event signs from the A683.
I will be competing at Harewood but I believe Jim Edwards will be going.
