Cultra Hill Climb

Cultra Hill Climb is a yearly event held in the grounds of the Ulster Folk Museum, Holywood.

Its always a good day with interesting vehicles, both on the track and on display.

The event always enjoys good weather, well as I remember it anyway.

Cultra Hill Climb was held in the grounds of the Folk Museum on 14th June and was popular as usual no doubt aided by the unusual weather – we’re getting sunshine most days! There’s always a wide selection of vehicles taking part as well as a display of interesting old and not so old cars. This sometimes brings on vaguely¬†uncomfortable feelings of nostalgia as I’ve owned one or two of the not so old cars in my youth.

As usual I’m behind with processing my photographs and I’ll be adding more to my site in the near future.

Cultra Hill Climb 2013

The Cultra Hill Climb is an annual event held in the grounds of the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, Cultra, Holywood.  This year it fell on Saturday 1 June 2013 and the sun came out.

It has been said that the event allows you to see vehicles from the past century being used as originally intended and this was certainly the case with these older rear wheel drive cars showing their mettle at each bend in the course. Further attractions included a display of Porsche cars, Crossle Racing cars (based in Holywood), motorcycles and lots more.
