Tighe Cams Hillclimb Series


Recommended Posts

if anyone is interested in competing in the Hillclimb series at Mt Cotton, registration opens Friday 20th January with the following event dates:

Rd1 Mar 26

Rd2 Apr 30

Rd3 Jul 9

Rd4 Aug13

Rd5 Sept 24

Rd6 Dec 3

I saw from the results that a R32 GTR entered the last hillclimb in '05, and won the awd turbo class. Not sure who it was, or if they are on SAU because that was the same weekend I was at Bathurst for the Speed Weekend. Hopefully he'll enter the series for next year. You can do individual events there too if you want, depending on how many series registered entries thay get for the round.

Other significant Hillclimb events:

QHC QLD Hillclimb Championship Mt Cotton June 3-4

AHC Aust. Hillclimb Championship Bathurst Nov 3-5

I'm definitely entering the Mt Cotton series, and may do the AHC depending on what hillclimb they run (and my finances). I wouldn't bother going for the Esses Hillclimb again, but Mountain Straight Hillclimb is awesome.

entry costs are normally $66 - its the best value motorsport around. MG Car Club own (and built) the facility themselves so the overheads are very low.

they have a class for awd turbos which normally has lots of very fast WRXs, a couple of Evos and the occassional GTR and one GTI-R Pulsar.

You need a CAMS L2S licence.

Actually, there is a Come and Try Day on February 5 which would be perfect for anyone a bit curious about the place. I think they charge something like $25 for that and no CAMS licence required. They have experienced competitors there as instructors too, who will ride with you in the car to show you the ropes. I'll probably be there for the Test and Tune that afternoon - hopefully it will be dry this time!

I'm with SPARC (Surfer's Paradise Auto Racing Club) who aren't very big or active anymore, but have cheap $30 membership.

    • The boy crashed his Patrol a while ago, so he is now driving his mum's ASX and she is driving my Honda I initially said he could have the Honda to drive around (he's a good kid currently training at the police academy), but, his mum was quick in saying that he "will" take the ASX and she will take the Honda, he was a bit upset with that, he rates the manual Honda more than the automatic ASX (mums taxi), and I'm getting the feeling she enjoys thrashing the manual Honda around In other news, I'm looking at a MX5 NB series 2 on Saturday  I always loved my NB series 1, but after stripping it down because I'm a idiot it wasn't fun cruising or driving around daily, and Jackie refused to drive it, which was an issue if we went out, because her refusing to drive it meant I lost my designated driver if we went to a party, or dinner, or...... basically anywhere where I could get a glow on Yes yes, I may need a new job if I decide to buy https://www.seek.com.au/apprentice-hairdresser-jobs/in-All-Sydney-NSW Plus giving the Honda to the boy, which is my cunning plan, will give me enough wifey type credits to turn up in another car Meh
    • Yeah I've just been checking it out on GTR registry and its the emerald green pearl (DS0) and only 610 made for S1 RS-Four V (if i'm understanding correctly) so I feel obliged to restore the paint to as close to original as possible!
    • Thankyou, sir! Yeah I'm having a lot of fun rewiring bits of the car. I used to dislike wiring a lot before, I dont like it any more but it is getting easier
    • Whoa, another light green stagea, don't see too many of those around
