The new Watergate Bay Speed Hillclimb, Cornwall’s only motorsport event on a closed public road.
Competitors will tackle the course one at a time to try to record the fastest time along a section of the B3276, the coast road linking Padstow and Newquay. The stretch of road will be temporarily closed to normal road traffic for the duration of the event.
The start of the course will be at Watergate Bay. On each day of the event, a maximum of 90 cars will be allowed to participate.
Competitors will race in the direction of Newquay, with the breathtakingly beautiful North Cornwall coastline to their right, and cross the finish line 720 metres further up the hill.
All profits from the inaugural running of the event will be donated to the Cornwall Air Ambulance and the Cornwall Food Foundation, which includes Jamie Oliver’s apprentice training scheme at Watergate Bay’s Fifteen restaurant.
