THE new offices of the Midland Automobile Club have been officially opened in the renovated courtyard at Shelsley Walsh at the famous hill climb track near Worcester.

The offices form part of a restoration of courtyard barns which has been taking place since 2005 when the club secured a 99-year lease on the Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb. The scheme also includes the restoration of the water mill.

Following a brief history of the buildings and a general update by club president John Moody and commercial manager Mark Constanduros, the ribbon cutting ceremony to open the new offices was performed by guest of honour Simon Tipple, manager of Destination Worcester.

Mr Tipple said: “These facilities will be a wonderful benefit to the regular motor sport fans and visitors, but in addition will also provide an attraction for any charities, businesses or organisations who are looking for somewhere unusual and atmospheric to hold a meeting or function. The whole place has a simply fantastic history and we at Destination Worcester will be working closely with Mark Constanduros and his team to help promote the venue and bring added tourism and visitors to the county and to Shelsley Walsh in particular.”

The newly-completed buildings house the MAC offices and meeting room, with the archive on the top floor – all lying opposite the Stratstone restaurant and jointly providing an impressive welcome for visitors to the site.
