Middlesbrough & District Motor Club has been associated with Saltburn-by-the-Sea, and motorsport events there, for many years.

The Hill Climb from Cat Nab Car Park up Saltburn Bank was extremely popular, not only to the riders competing, but also to the thousands of spectators who came to watch.

However, due to the discovery that we could no longer run the event
due to falling foul of the Road Traffic Act, we brought back a non-competitive event which has now been running successfully for several years.

Gavin Miller; Yet another well organised and thoroughly enjoyable event. Still the highlight of my motoring calendar. Thanks to all of the organising team, event staff and marshal’s, you all worked tirelessly to make the event superb

Philip Blackburn; Fantastic day, very well organised. We'll done to all involved 👍

Steve Wagstaff; Brilliant Saltburn Gathering on Sunday. Well organised, I thought the three lane holding area worked very well giving spectators more opportunity to see the vehicles. Everything worked like clockwork and there seemed to be no problem coping with over 100 entries. Many thanks.

I just wanted to say what a brilliant day we both had at this years Saltburn hillclimb. We really enjoyed our runs and were knocked out by the great selection of cars and bikes entered. You even managed to arrange for decent weather. We will certainly be putting the event on our MUST DO list for next year. Thanks again, best regards
