Harewood speed Hillclimb

Harewood "speed" Hillclimb (the form with italics and a lower-case s is used officially) is a hillclimb near the village of Harewood, West Yorkshire, England. The track can be found on the A659 between Harewood village and Collingham, north of Leeds. In addition to national events, it hosts rounds of the British Hill Climb Championship. Meetings are organised by the British Automobile Racing Club Yorkshire Centre.

The first event on the track took place in September 1962, and Best Time of the Day was set at 51.61s by Tony Lanfranchi. This was on the original 'Short Course'. In the mid 80's the track was extended to 1,538 yards (1,448 m), making it the longest BHHC hillclimb. As of September 2006, the current outright hill record holder is Scott Moran, whose time of 49.19s was set on 2 July 2006 in his Auto bhp|600|-1 Gould GR61x single seater race car.
