Glorious sunshine engulfed the famous Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb on Saturday 12th of July for the second Morgan “Thrill On The Hill” festival. If Thrill On The Hill wasn’t being billed as an annual event before, it certainly will be now!
Over 2000 Morgan owners and fans travelled to the picturesque corner of Worcestershire as hundreds of Morgans took on the famous 1000 yards. On looking crowds were entertained by everything from pre-war 3 Wheelers to the latest Plus 8 Speedster, many of which provided plenty of tyre smoke and automotive theatre.
Air displays from a Pitts S2S modified biplane and a beautiful WW2 Spitfire entertained crowds as well as live music from Elles Bailey and Random Numbers. Live art from Popbangcolour and a fine display of historic vehicles, including the 1962 Le Mans winning Plus 4 TOK258, on display in the cottage grounds provided a vast array of things to see and do. The star of the show proved to be the striking Aero GT3 car that had been wheeled out just for the Saturday event. Famous for its double win at Silverstone 5 years ago, the GT3 roared up the hill, announcing its arrival to everyone for miles.
We look forward to inviting more Chinese Morgan enthusiasts and fans to Shelsley Walsh in 2015 for another Thrill On The Hill!
