Reinstate Saltburn Hill Climb

339 Signatures | Sign Now

Created June 22, 2010 by David


Saltburn Hill Climb, organised and run by Middlesbrough & District Motor Club, had to be stopped due to a breach of the Road Traffic Act 1972 which prohibited speed events on Closed Roads.

In 2005 Ashok Kumar MP raised the issue in the House of Commons and arranged for the club and parish council to meet with Stehen Ladyman MP, with a view to a change in the law.

Now in 2010, Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, Saltburn, Marske & New Marske Parish Council and Middlesbrough Motor Club want to have this event reinstated by whatever means are available.

Tom Blenkinsop, the new MP for Middlesbrough South & East Cleveland has agreed to follow up on the work that Ashok started in the House.


The MSA have a national petition, see:

    The short stretch of road for this hillcimb is perfect, and a great assett to the local town, brings in thousands of spectators annually (or did!)

    The continental mainland often close roads and everyone gets involved. It brings a festival atmosphere to towns and villages. We should do the same.

  15. Dave Woodgate UNITED KINGDOM

    Good luck, we need more venues like this. – It certainly works on the continent, so why not here, away from the towns and cities? – It’s OK to close roads for bike races!

  16. Ian Close UNITED KINGDOM

    Let’s make full use of our nation’s assets and opportunities not tie them up in red tape and unnecessary restrictions.

    I believe the re-instatement of this event and other similar events on closed public roads to be good for local businesses and also good publicity for the local area. There is no reason why a properly organised and controlled event could not be run on closed roads. As an ex competitor for many years in both car and motorcycle sport including hillclimbs I really hope that this event can be run again soon.

    I am all in favour of properly organised motor sport, and am always sorry to see previous motor sport locations lost. So if this can be avoided, I am in favour.
