£3000  26/09/17 SUNDAY PRIZE FUND  THINK YOU CAN KEEP UP? DIRECT PORLOCK HILL CLIMB Hill Climb Go-Ride
Porlock Hill Climb information 2016 Porlock Hill is strangely known throughout out the world, famed as the steepest A road in the country with many stories of cars over heating going up and burning breaks out coming down. The good news is that the Hill Climb is not going up the 1 in 4 main road climb but the longer, gentler and most definitely more scenic 4.2 mile Porlock Toll Road. We are fortunate to have been offered the use of the Toll Road for this event by Porlock Manor Estate to whom we are most grateful because not only do we have the use of the road but also permission to close it to all traffic for the duration of the events. This is not just a race but a community event supported by the vibrant village of Porlock, the Minehead CC although growing is still a small club and without the support of the Porlock community this event would not be possible. Porlock Ladies will once again be feeding everybody, the Porlock community will be helping with the marshalling, the Porlock Recreation Ground committee are supplying the parking and showers, the village hall the headquarters and without doubt the vocal support for the riders will come from the locals and holidaying visitors alike. Please take a few moments to have a look at the Porlock Manor Estate website www.porlockmanorestate.org.uk and the Porlock village website www.porlock.co.uk, if nothing else it will give you an insight into the Toll Road and where you may wish to shop or have lunch after the event or stay the night before the event. If you do require accommodation please check out the website or simply phone the ladies at the Porlock Visitor Centre (Tel: 01643-863150) who are a wealth of knowledge and only too pleased to book the accommodation for you.
The day itself is split into 3 distinct but linked events: Event 1: 9.30am   -   Porlock Toll Road Hill Climb - 4.2 miles in length with £3,000 in prize money donated by Tanks Direct Event 2: 1pm  - Merlins Go Ride Race - 2 miles in length with prizes donated by Tanks Direct Sign on time 09:30am – 11:30am. Start time 11:45am with presentation straight after racing alongside the main adult event. This is the race for our future Olympic and World Champions to get a taste for the sport. Please, please, please stay on long enough to give them a Tour de France style send off at the start of their race. Just look at some of the pictures from last year to see how much it means to them and hopefully sometime in the future we will be able to say "I watched them when they were just a youngster" as they become the Maryka and Tejvans of the future. 1.30pm  - Prize presentation for the above event in the village hall.
