Porsche Centre Reading sponsors the Kop Hill Climb

05/8/2016

On Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 September 2016, Porsche Centre Reading will take part in the annual Kop Hill Climb.

Held near Princes Risborough, a small market town in the heart of rural Buckinghamshire, the Kop Hill Climb has seen a revival in recent years. There has been a surge in popularity with turnouts last year of an estimated 16,500 visitors. The hill climb is now a must-see event for many motor enthusiasts with plenty of new, unique, classic and iconic vehicles on display over the weekend.

The Kop Hill Climb was originally started to raise funds for just a few local charities, however, the event has grown to raise an outstanding £75,000 in 2015 and over £300,000 since its inception. The funds raised go to a wide range of community projects and charities with a key focus on helping youth, the elderly and those disadvantaged.

The hill climb itself is a showcase for the power and grace of some of the classic cars and challenges the older cars and bikes to simply make it to the top.

Last year Porsche Centre Reading had the full model range on display, and this year are delighted to welcome a few additions, including the new 911 and the 718 Boxster.

Sean Wilson, Centre Principal of Porsche Centre Reading said “The event is now a firm favourite in the motor enthusiast’s diary and after last year’s success, we are delighted to be taking part in the Kop Hill Climb once again. It is fantastic to see the newer models alongside some of the classic Porsche cars, showing how far the brand and technology have progressed over the years whilst maintaining the iconic Porsche look.”
