About this event

Castle Hill Pre-War Hill Climb

Crane Estate, Ipswich,  MA

Saturday, October 16, Rally Tour & Dinner in the Great House (the mansion at the top of the hill)!

Sunday, October 17, Hill Climb

Use your credit card and the charge will not go through until the weekend of the event and you will not be charged credit card fees.

The spectacular Castle Hill Pre-War Hill Climb is back for 2022 after a succesful relaunch in 2021 with a special new feature - Saturday night dinner in the mansion at the top of the hill known as the Great House!  We are the very fortunate guests of The Trustees of Reservations, the organization that preserves over 27,000 acres in Massachusetts.   The event is open to cars made or designed prior to WWII so includes MG TCs on 19" wheels, HRGs, and others made post-war that are a pre-war design. 

The weekend starts with a rally tour on Saturday of the "North Shore" area. Saturday night we have a special treat in store, we will dine in the Great House overlooking the Atlantic.  We hope to visit a collection along the way.   More details  for Saturday's events will be made available in the summer.

Sunday will feature the hill climb and you can, and should, enter the hill climb now as it will be limited to the first 30 entries.  You can sign up for the rally tour and dinner on Saturday now and details will be sent to you in the summer.
