Kop Hill Climb at Princes Risborough commemorates the historic Kop Hill Climb races held in this famous UK venue between 1910 and 1925. Some 400 vintage and classic motorcars and motorbikes attend each year.

In 2011 Kop Hill Climb commissioned Cleartext Systems to supply a web based registration system to enable hill runners and paddock display vehicles to register and manage their bookings online. The system would also need an administration dashboard for reports and some workflow to progress entrants through the registration and acceptance process. It had to be able to evolve into a full event management platform specific to their needs.

We delivered the following on schedule for the start of the events registration calendar.

  • A simple to use registration process that mimicked the legacy web form system
  • A system designed as a platform to build new features on each year
  • An Entrants Dashboard allowing event participants to;
    • view the progress of their application to run the hill
    • add additional vehicles and drivers to their booking
    • manage vehicles booked on club pitches in the paddock
  • An Officials Dashboard allowing event management to;
    • view, edit and list entries by various criteria
    • use workflow to manage vehicle selection processes
    • view real time registration statistics against targets
  • Higher uptime, better reporting and higher email confirmation delivery stats.

Phase two of the project, in 2013 added soapbox registration. Traders and sponsors management and administration was delivered for 2014. Many small improvements and enhancements to paddock passes was delivered for the 2015 event. Moving further towards delivering a whole of business platform.
