27th Aug 2017 is a Come and Try Hillclimb
Hosted by the MG Car Club of Qld at the Mt Cotton Hillclimb complex it is something I would highly recommend. For those that were at Lakeside this is a bit different again. Which is better, Hillclimb or Sprints? Well it is impossible to say. They are different and each fantastic in their own way. The “Hill” prob shows your errors, mistakes and cars lacking of power/handling and brakes more so than Lakeside. Like the Sprint day, no CAMS lic is required, however, you car will need a current fire extinguisher, helmet and must pass scrutineering. It will be a cheaper activity than Sprints (well the Come and Try Day is inexpensive, but a true event gets more costly).
On the morning you go to scrutineering, have a briefing, walk the track, complete a couple of sighting laps with an instructor and then get to do fast laps. Beware though, build up to a fast pace, at the last one a few guys went off going to fast on their first lap and more or less forfeited the day as they had to see the course steward and had their car left towed to an inaccessible spot until lunch time when all was over. Compared to a regular event you will get in many runs, often waiting only 5min between runs (as a bench mark the old Liberty Wagon does 56sec consistently on med/hard compound semi slicks).
