The Wilbraham Hill Climb

Henry Ford once said “Auto racing began 5 minutes after the second car was built” and we couldn’t agree more. Cars weren’t just meant to be driven, they were meant to be raced. The Wilbraham Hill Climb is a race older than Pikes Peak, where 20+ vintage race cars, compete against time, gravity, and each other for the chance to be crowned ‘King of the Mountain.’

100+ year-old cars. 100+ year-old race.

The Wilbraham Hill Climb is a re-enactment of the 1908 historic climb up Wilbraham Mountain, an unofficial proving ground for many of the early automobile and motorcycle manufacturers of the Brass Era. The 1908 event was put on by the Automobile Club of Springfield and sanctioned by the racing board of the American Automobile Association. The cars were timed over a measured mile by the Timing Club of New York City. The 2017 event was featured on an episode of “Chasing Classic Cars” with Wayne Carini.
