Bouley Bay Hillclimb, Jersey

Stunning coastal venue on Jersey overlooking the French coast.

From the beach-side start line the cars climb through a tortuous series of hairpin bends to a finish high on the cliff top.

This hillclimb is visited once a year by the British Hillclimb Championship and is one of the original 5 venues which featured in the inaugural championship in 1947. Also features club events throughout the year.

The Hillclimb at Bouley Bay

Quite a long hillclimb at 1011 yards.

Short steep straight away from the start line at the hotel, into a tight left, then immediately a tight right. A fast run into Slemans (V fast corner) then on to the long left hander that’s Les Platons, to the Radio Corner hairpin, and finally one last corner before the finish.

Hill record: 37.82s –  Jos Goodyear (GWR Raptor), 19th July 2012.
