Olivers Mount

Olivers Mount

Nestling beneath the green and peaceful wooded slopes on the outskirts of Scarborough, lies one of the most beautiful and most challenging circuits in Europe, and it is claimed, England's only natural road racing circuit.

Olivers Mount is first and foremost a motorcycle track, being too narrow for most race cars to overtake. But the circuit did host Formula 3 races in 1955, and 56, as well as many hillclimb events over the years. The track has also been used as a rally stage, both in the R.A.C. Rally (1975,78, 82, and 85) and it's recent historic equivalent, the Roger Albert Clark Rally.

The track uses public roads, and is characterised by it's impossibly tight hairpin corners and steep elevation changes, which have led to it being called the "mini mountain course".
