This very popular event returns for it’s third year here at Leighton Hall.

SPEED DEMONS are revving up ahead of a popular motorcycle event that takes place on Sunday, September 24th.

For the second time, Carnforth’s Leighton Hall invites visitors to enjoy an exhilarating day of racing at its Motorcycle Hill Climb event – and it’s set to be the best yet.

A real challenge for riders, the track is 220 metres in length, undulating and at an incline with one 50 to 60-degree bend around 50 metres from the start line. Open to all solo motorcycles and three wheelers of any cc, there are certainly no restrictions on speed and no noise limit, either!

Leighton Hall is steeped in history and heritage and is the perfect backdrop for this annual event, which welcomes vintage as well as modern machines.

Organiser Ian Sherrard said “For me there is nothing more exciting than witnessing the sights, sounds and smells of race day, but it’s not just about the racing; there are commentaries throughout the day, autojumble/trade stands and club displays”.

If you’re planning to attend, the fun kicks off at 9:30am with practice runs and racing starts at 1pm until 5pm. There will be awards for the class winners, including the Leighton Hall Cup for “the overall fastest time of the day” and visitors will get a close-up view of the action, as well as have the chance to see the machines in the paddock.

As well as on site catering, the Hall’s grounds, garden, and tearooms will be open but the Hall itself will be closed for the day. Unfortunately due to health and safety dogs are not allowed at this event.  There are lots of outdoor activities for younger visitors to enjoy. Children can let off steam racing around the Caterpillar Maze, Woodland Walk and Tree Face Trail as well as enjoying the sandpit, play area and bouncy castle.
