Shelsley Walsh is celebrating 110 years this year and is to be honoured with the presentation of a “Red Wheel” to recognise its contribution to transport on the 19th July.
The “Red Wheel” will be presented to the Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb by The Transport Trust to recognise its contribution to transport and more specifically to motor sport as it is the oldest motor sport venue still operating on its original course.
The “Red Wheel” is to be unveiled at The Midland Automobile Club’s Classic Nostalgia event on the 19th July at 10am by 5 time Le Mans winner Derek Bell.
Mark Constanduros, Commercial Manager said “This is a really great honour in our 110th year to recognise Shelsley Walsh’s rich history, which we continually add to every year. To have Derek here on the same day to unveil the plaque is wonderful, as we are celebrating his achievements too. It will be a great occasion and we thank the Transport Trust for honouring our history”.

About The Transport Trust
The “Red Wheel” scheme commemorates Britain’s rich and globally important legacy in the development of transport and presents it to a new and wider audience. Some of our most significant heritage sites, eg. the Forth Bridge and Channel Tunnel, are household names but many more are currently little known and their importance unappreciated.
