Onboard Guide to Doune

Doune hillclimb (aka King of the Hills) is one hill where you will fail if you don’t believe you can do it. It’s an ecletic hill – starting out in the open, then into a very narrow walled section overhung by trees, then out into the sunshine and open fields before going back into the woods again.

The following vids will give you some different approaches to the hill, and are well worth watching a few times before having a go yourself. Needless to say we’ve included runs by some of the locals…

Saloon Car – Graeme Wight Jnr (Hillman Imp)


Kit Car – Aaron Ellington (Caterham R500)


Bike-engined Car – Jonathan Rarity (MH Ghost)


Bike-engined Car – Lee Adams (GWR Raptor)


Unlimited Single-Seater – Graeme Wight Jnr (GWR Predator)


As always not all the videos show what you should do! But they do provide plenty of things to learn.
