Shelsley Walsh in Worcestershire is, perhaps, one of the less well-known motorsport venues in the UK, but it is undoubtedly one of the most important. In fact the Shelsley Walsh Hillclimb is the world’s oldest motorsport event, continually staged at its original venue since 1905.

Hillclimbing, as it is practised in the UK, is a quintessentially British form of motorsport, as well as being one of the most entertaining for spectators – and you can find all kinds of vehicles and drivers taking part. That is a big part of what makes this film, taken by Rich Danby, so compelling.

The concept is quite simple, time-lapse footage of a day in the life of Shelsley Walsh, but the execution is top-notch. Enjoy.
