PREPARATIONS are underway for an annual Dales hillclimb and motorshow that has gained a strong following from fans.

The event, organised by Bainbridge and District Motor Club, will take place at Sorrel Sykes Farm, near West Burton, Wensleydale, on Wednesday, July 24.

Admission and parking is free, but donations are welcome to support the event. Refreshments will be available and there will be trade stalls.

The gates open at midday with the practice starting at 4pm and the racing at 6pm.

The event is open to all off-road bikes.

An organiser of the event said: "Hillclimb back this year and after some works to the hill, it looks like it’s going to be faster and more entertaining than ever.

"It is great to see spectators both local and from afar to keep this new found traditional alive."

Cash prizes are available.

Entry is £20 before the 24th or £25 on the day.
