British Hillclimb Championship
Avon Tyres has been a key supplier to the British Hillclimb Championship for several decades.
The British Hillclimb Championship is organised and run by the British Automobile Racing Club on behalf of Motorsport UK and takes place at 11 different venues throughout the United Kingdom and the Channel Islands. There are two rounds at each event, with the first event of the 2020 season taking place in April and the final event in September. At each event there are two ‘Top 12’ run-offs, with championship points going to the top 10.
The first British Hillclimb Championship was held back in 1947 and, since then, there have been 34 different champions.
Relentless product design and development has driven Avon’s success in Hillclimb, resulting in the most effective crossply and radial Hillclimb products available in the sport. Avon’s Hillclimb tyres are specifically engineered to tackle Hillclimb challenges, including the relatively short run distances and the need for the tyres to rapidly reach their optimum temperature.
2020 marks the launch of Avon’s latest and most comprehensive range of products to date, including new sizes, compounds and constructions specifically designed for the British Hillclimb Championship, together with a range optimised for Europe’s longer hills and warmer climates.
