The Kop Hill Climb, near Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire, started in 1910, and was one of the most popular speed hill climbs in the country for motorcycles and motorcars until 1925 when, as a result of an accident on the hill, all racing on public roads in Britain was banned.

Last years centennial of the Kop Hill Climb propelled it into one of the "must attend" events on the motorsport calendar, so for the 2nd consecutive year Ace Cafe London has organised a drive out and ride out to the event to commemorate its exciting past.

The vehicles, cars and bikes, ranging from 1904 to 1973, to include veterans, vintage and classics with a special cavalcade of motoring history featuring Jaguar E-Type cars, this year celebrating its 50th anniversary, alongside a selection of specially invited iconic modern motors, all of whom will be following in the historic slipstream of such legends as Malcolm Campbell in his"Bluebird" and Freddie Dixon on his Douglas.

Proceeds of this event going to local charities.
