Healeys up the hill at Shelsley Walsh

 

Shelsley Walsh is now the “New Venue” for the 2018 celebration of the “Frogeye Sprite”.

Don’t miss the 60th Birthday Party of this iconic car, first unveiled on the 20th May 1958 at the Monaco Grand Prix. We have secured the Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb to celebrate that moment in Healey History and we would like you to be there.

We have a full day of fun and excitement planned and wish to extend our invitation to all Sprite derived car clubs for the day. We have agreed a deal with Shelsley Walsh to have private use of the whole site for the day on 20th May 2018. We plan to make the day a family fun day with entertainment and special guests and a chance to see Austin Healey Club and Sprite Hillclimb drivers demonstrate their skills up the hill. We plan to see some historic cars ascend the hill plus a number of driver’s wishing to run up the hill will get the opportunity to do it under the direction of the Shelsley Walsh staff.  We plan to put together a weekend that will bring together all the Healey / Sprite community and will be a great family fun-filled day to celebrate this great British Sports Car.

This event will be a celebration of the Sprite’s 60th Birthday. It will also be the first time the Austin Healey Club has opened its doors to other Healey clubs on one of its most important meetings and we all have a common interest in the Austin Healey Sprite marque. It is time to express this love of the marque together and enjoy a great day as friends and fellow enthusiasts.

We anticipate that demand will outstrip availability, so we strongly recommend that you book early to avoid disappointment. Booking forms will be available in the December issue of Revcounter and you will be able to book online via our Bookings Page here shortly.
