Gallery: Wiscombe Park Hillclimb 2014

Last week the British Hillclimb Championship travelled to South West England for the Wiscombe Park Hillclimb, a historic hillclimb course in Devon which has been host BCH-sanctioned races since 1962.

The hillclimb attracts a unique selection of cars, all of them designed to race up the narrow hillclimb courses in as little time as possible. The single-seater formula cars are traditionally the fastest up the hill and this year was no different, with Will Hall in his 3.5-liter Force-Nissan setting the fastest time of the day at 33.89. Hall tied with Trevor Willis, who had set a record of 33.92 seconds up Wiscombe last year.

At Wiscombe, road cars participating included the Nissan GT-R, Lotus Elise, various vintage and modern day Porsches and more than hand full of Caterham Sevens.
