Forrestburn Speed Hill Climb

The summit of Forrestburn Speed Hill Climb


Forrestburn is the first purpose-built speed hill climb track to be built in the United Kingdom since the construction of the facility at Brooklands in 1907. It was planned in the early 1990s as the first phase of a larger motor sport complex including international and club circuits accessed from Junction 5 of the M8 Motorway.  With its dramatic scenery, remoteness from centres of population but with proximity to the M8, Forrestburn is an ideal location for a motor sport complex.

Track and events

The track layout was designed by the founding MSCC committee members with assistance from  Derek Ongaro of the RAC MSA and former Scottish Hill Climb Champion Kenny Allan with advice from many others on safety and marshal requirements.  The track is 1030 metres in length rising from 221m to 246m AOD with a maximum gradient of 1:4. Forrestburn hosts rounds of the Scottish Hillclimb Championship as well as Production Car Trials, Autotests and Track Nights.
