Scotland’s oldest motorsport venue is set to host its 11th annual running of the Bo’ness Revival Classic Show and Hill Climb, taking place on September 1 and 2.
The Bo’ness Hill Climb, situated on the Kinneil Estate near Falkirk, was first used in 1932 and in the last decade has opened its doors each year for the revival event held on the first weekend in September.
Over 100 cars will compete in the latest hillclimb across ten classes, which encompass every era of motorsport history, and spectators will witness Austin 7s, Bentleys and Rileys, among many other marques, competing on the course.
In addition to the hillclimb, the event’s Sunday will host its classic car show wherein over 30 clubs will exhibit over 300 cars.
