For motoring enthusiasts why not visit The Shelsley Walsh Speed Hill Climb at Shelsley Walsh, Worcestershire, organised by the Midland Automobile Club (MAC). It is one of the oldest motorsport events in the world, and is in fact the oldest to have been staged continuously (wartime excepted) on its original course, first having been run in 1905. The Best of British Meeting is on the 4th and 5th Jun. For information and future events please click here
