Competitive Hill Climb events were held on the dirt and gravel roads of the Estate each year from 1928 to 1935 when the RAC refused to grant a competition licence for further events due to concern for spectator safety. The events were organised by the Bugatti Owners’ Club (BOC) and the Middlesex County Automobile Club (MCAC).

To mark the 80th anniversary of the last Hill Climb on the Estate, the Chalfont St Peter Feast Day, the Chalfont St Peter History Society and the Chalfont Heights Estate are jointly arranging a Commemorative Parade of cars from the 1930s to drive along the route of the course and through the Village to a display area on Golf Hill Common. The parade will take place on the morning of the Village Feast Day, Saturday 27th June 2015.

The parade is open to owners of cars manufactured before 1940. For further details please contact [email protected].   Also see www.feastofstpeter.org.uk

Further details of the parade will be published on this website during May.
