WISCOMBE PARK

Wiscombe Park is a superb hillclimb venue situated in a steep wooded valley in Southleigh, 6 miles south of Honiton in Devon.

It has a long tradition of providing the finest national / club motorsport and is considered by many people to be the premier motorsport venue in the south west.

Hillclimb

The hillclimb course, which is 1000 yards (914 metres) in length, was opened over 60 years ago and runs national and club motorsport events throughout the year.  A typical event sees a wide range of 2, 3 and 4 wheel machinery competing against the clock - always with competition in a friendly spirit.

 

We are extremely proud of the heritage behind Wiscombe Park and we are grateful to the Chichester family for their continued support in allowing the grounds of Wiscombe Park to be used as one of the countries finest motorsport venues.

Visit Wiscombe Park to enjoy the unique speed and spectacle of a type of motorsport known as 'speed hillclimb'- a race against the clock to the top of the hill.

 

Events throughout the season bring you the top driver and car combinations from the past and present - including single seater race cars, historic cars and an array of motorcycle machinery on two and three wheels.

 

Details of all this year's events can be found on the 'Events' page of this website or on our Facebook page.

Hill Records

The hillclimb course was originally built in 1958 and extended in 1961 - the hill record for the extended course was established by D. G. Addicott in a Lotus at 49.3 secs.  Shortly after the opening of the extended course, Wiscombe Park was selected to host rounds of the British Hillclimb Championship  - and has hosted the Championship every year since 1962.

As cars became lighter and more powerful the outright hill record has tumbled throughout the years and currently stands at 32.94 seconds - set by Alex Summers (photo) in July 2022.
