Entries to the 2021 Bo’ness Revival are now open and there are classes to suit all types of classic car.
The 2021 event will be held at Forrestburn Speed Hill Climb due to Covid restrictions making it not viable to hold the Revival at its traditional home on the Kinneil Estate. Our thanks go to the Monklands Sporting Car Club for the help with organising this year’s event.
However, the spirit of Bo’ness will be just as strong as ever with a wide range of classes and cars competing on the 1030-metre course with a maximum gradient of 1-in-4.
Demand is strong for entries to the 2021 Bo’ness Revival, so entry early to avoid disappointment. Entries are via the Bo’ness Revival website
We’re delighted and very proud to reveal the Bo’ness Hillclimb 14th Revival Commemorative Bottling from our sponsor Cask 88. The limited edition bottle is a 14-year old Croftengea Single Cask malt and only 100 bottles will be available.
Back in 2007, as the plans for the first Bo’ness Revival were getting underway, this spirit was distilled, and filled into a refill Bourbon Hogshead (#254), at Loch Lomond distillery in Alexandria. After 14 years of maturation, this peated variant of the distillery’s usual produce has developed notes of sweet buttered popcorn, the scent of an open fire, and herbaceous notes, which come together to form a well-rounded Highland dram.
If you take a look at the label, you’ll get strong notes of Castrol R and Austin 7 from the unique Moose Special, driven by Colin McLachlan at Bo’ness. Each bottle costs £97 and is an instant collector’s item, though we can also recommend tasting the contents.
Cask 88 is the sponsor of the Bo’ness Revival and is a whisky cask specialist that offers buyers the opportunity to select, purchase, label and package their own exclusive whisky drawn from the finest Scottish whisky casks. The company founders have been trading collectible single malt since 1987 and opened the Asia office in 2013; now Cask 88 offers a wide selection of old and rare casks from world-renowned distilleries, and provides end-to-end care that includes cask procurement and storage, bespoke packaging design and bottling services. An extensive inventory and expansive global network provide an unparalleled selection of fine whiskies, which attracts a wide clientele from London, Hong Kong and Beijing to New York.

After a lot of discussion and soul-searching, it’s with heavy hearts that we have decided to cancel the 2020 Bo’ness Revival and Classic. In light of Motorsport UK cancelling all events until at least the end of June, we are unable to plan an event that takes many months to organise to make it as successful and safe as possible for competitors, entrants, marshals, organisers and visitors. We hope you understand and everyone involved with the Revival is humbled by the support you have shown throughout this situation that none of us could have predicted.
We’d also like to thank all of our sponsors who have been unstinting in their support for the Revival and without whom we simply couldn’t run the event.
We will be refunding entry fees to those who have already paid for the Classic. Any Hillclimb competitor can also be refunded, defer their entry to 2021 or gift their entry fee to the club, we wil lbe in touch about this in the near future,
However, this is far from the end of the Revival and Bo’ness Hill Climb Revival Club. We are already looking to the 2021 event and how we can make it the best Revival yet. Much of the planning that has gone into this year’s event will be carried over and we have plenty of other ideas too.
We will continue with our regular Facebook posts celebrating the great drivers, cars and people of past Revivals. Kenny Baird has plenty more of his history of Bo’ness Hillclimb to come and we also have our virtual Breakfast Club meeting this Sunday from 10am right here on the Bo’ness Revival Facebook page. Make sure you drop by with a cuppa, bacon roll and ready to chat about all things classic and hillclimb.
There are also other events we have planned for later in the year that we’ll keep you up to speed on as and when the unfolding situation allows.
In the meantime, all of us at the Bo’ness Revival ask that you stay safe, keep well and we send our best wishes. We look forward to seeing you all again in good health and cheer very soon.
