The swinging sixties will be roaring their way onto the grounds of the Cultra Manor as the world’s oldest active Hillclimb returns to the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum for the 2014 Cultra event.

The scene has been set to celebrate all ‘Minis, Mods and Monsters’ during the day-long event in association with the Thoroughbred Sports Car Club NI (TSCCNI) on Saturday 14 June.

The theme is in celebration of Paddy Hopkirk’s win on the Monte Carlo rally 50 years ago as Northern Ireland commemorates an important year for the Mini.

The coolness of Vespa-riding mods, and modified cars will also be recognised at the event, alongside a number of monster cars; all vehicles, big and small will be the focus of the day.

Mark Kennedy, Road and Rail Curator at the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum spoke at the launch.

“We are delighted to partner once again with the TSCCNI for this year’s Cultra Hillclimb event ‘Minis, Mods and Monsters’, which is sure to be a great hit with visitors to the museum.”

“This year the museum is delighted to welcome for the first time, the popular ‘Frock Around the Clock’ Vintage Fair Extraordinaire that will put on a super show in Cultra Manor.”

Mark continued; “Crosslé Car Company of Holywood will have a display, where Plum Tyndall will also launch his book ‘Hidden Glory’ based on the world-famous car company, in the most fitting of settings. Not only is the event an great day for all the drivers, there will be entertainment for all.”
