Question Hill Climbs??

Is there any interest in doing an SCCA approved hill climb in our region? Do we have enough hill climb legal cars? I drove up 341 to VC the other day and thought that if we used just the last 2.6 miles of that road it would make a pretty good course. Any ideas?

I'd be game if the vehicle doesn't have to be road legal...

Ones that meet the safety rules and requirements, namely a full cage, fire supression, etc.

For 341 if you use the loop to get back down to the start you'll need to be road legal. If there is some way to all park at the top and go back down the same course at the end of a run it may be doable with non road legal.

IMO as it already exists, just sign up for the VC hill climb in September. I'd be surprised if SCCA would sanction it given the drop offs with no crash barriers and history of the event.

Default Hillclimb??

The SCCA Hillclimb Rules require the same driver and vehicle safety equipment as Track Trials. (Rollbar, harness, fire bottle, TT Drivers license, etc.)

It would require a licensed track inspector and a timing system. I think it is likely the we could get it sanctioned if we wanted to do it.

The requirement for a vehicle license could be an issue. Maybe we could shut down every 20-30 minutes and drive back down the course or trailer cars back down.

It would be a costly event and we, as a Region would need to be sure we want to do it given the history of the event.
