The primary aim of the Bo’ness Revival is to preserve the heritage of Scotland’s first purpose built Motor Sport venue, with Bo’ness holding a major, if unsung, role of Scotland’s and the UK’ s Motor Sport history. Most of the great names in Motor Sport have competed at Bo’ness, Jim Clark, Jackie Stewart, Stirling Moss to name but a few. As the cost of staging the Bo’ness Revival Hillclimb increases year on year the organising team are continually seeking ways to keep the Revival alive and viable. One of the ways we have helped achieve this aim is by promoting the Bo’ness Revival Classic side of the event, which has grown into one of the major events on the Scottish Classic Car scene. We do not make claims about the Revival as a whole being the most prestigious or biggest event in Scotland, however, we are Scotland’s only established combined genuine historic motor sport and classic car event which is all about giving enthusiastic owners the opportunity to use their cars, either in the Hillclimb or Classic, and be part of a friendly event with like-minded fellow enthusiasts.

Currently there are circa 250-members of the BHCR from all corners of the UK and we would like to expand membership and activities for those members who own Classic Cars. In addition to the benefits of being a member of the BHCR members of the Bo’ness Revival Classic Club receive,

  • Free entry to the Bo’ness Revival Classic Club stand in the Showfield
  • Members monthly meetup Blether meetings, providing there is sufficient interest and no Covid restrictions.
  • Membership of an MSA and SACU approved club with membership card
  • A Monthly Newsletter available only to members and not available on the BHCR website (distributed by email)
  • A reduction of £5 from the entry fee for each of the hill climbs (£10)
  • The opportunity to assist the club up to and during  the 2021 Revival Meeting
  • Your Membership Fee helps to maintain, support and improve the oldest Scottish Motor Racing venue

Opinions vary as to the definition of a Classic Car, our definition is interpreted as generally any car produced over 20-years ago, together with modern sports cars.

Bo’ness Revival 2020 cancelled – but we’ll be back!

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.

2020 Revival

Many of you will have read that Motorsport UK has suspended all permits and Certificates of Exemption until at least 30 April 2020. The Bo’ness Revival Committee wholeheartedly agrees with this move to safeguard officials, marshals, competitors and fans, and to relieve the impact on our emergency services.

At present, we are continuing to work to make the 2020 Revival the best Bo’ness yet and we appreciate all of your ongoing support and that of our sponsors. If the situation changes, we will update immediately.
