Harewood is the longest hillclimb course in the country and provides a real test of car performance and driver ability. The first event took place on the original ‘short course’ in 1962, and the British Hillclimb Championship started contesting rounds there in 1964. In 1992 the course was extended to its current length. One of Harewood’s most famous and challenging features is the straight between Orchard and Farmhouse, where the cars travel at high speed between the buildings of Stockton Farm.
