The problem for me is that I simply don't know enough British (/UK) hillclimbs. Shelsley Walsh, Goodwood, Prescott. Since it's neither of the first two, it has to be Prescott :-D

No, none of the ones you mentioned, but it is a round of the British Hillclimb Championship.
Seeing as it is a bit outside the box unless you follow UK Hillclimbs lets make it simpler with what should be the final clue.

It is one of only two hillclimb venues operated by the BARC. (They operate three other venues but only two hillclimbs. )
This list of the 5 motorsport venues BARC operate should help. :tongue: https://www.barc.net/venues/

It isnt Gurston Down Hillclimb.

I was going to suggest this because it's a GPL track...Harewood Hill?

Continental Divide? If not that, then probably Seattle International (or whatever was its name) at Kent/WA - I often confuse the layouts of those tracks.

Nailed it with Seattle International Raceway!


The third round of the SCCA L&M Continental 5000 Championship was held at Seattle International Raceway on May 23, 1971. Results are available at www.oldracingcars.com/results/result.php?RaceID=SE71

Well its a Cooper Bristol which dates it to 1952, and it looks like Hawthorn at the wheel. Maybe Silverstone?

My first thought was Trenton, but I'm not sure whether it was around (and tarmac'd) that early.

The track is smaller than Trenton, and further up north.
