The Hills Are Alive With Motorsport
HRCC Historic Mount Cotton Hillclimb, April 10, 2005

After three outstanding historic hillclimbs at the Mount Cotton Hillclimb facility, the Queensland motorsport community will once again gather for another blast up the hill on April 10.

The Mount Cotton Hillclimb, which is owned and operated by the MG Car Club of Queensland, is regarded as one of the best facilities in the nation, and the HRCC's meeting provides a special once a year opportunity for historic vehicles to star.

Once again the meeting will combine the best of the historic fifth category vehicles, as well as invited pre-war vehicles and pre-1960's sports and racing cars and other invited cars.

Fifth category vehicles include the ever-popular Group N touring cars, vintage, thoroughbred sports and racing cars, as well as more contemporary pre-1977 racing and sports cars, and new inclusions historic Formula Vee and Group C touring cars.

Competitors will be able to compete in a traditional hillclimb, where the fastest car in a group wins, or a 'regularity trial' themed event, where consistent times throughout the weekend will be rewarded.

The Mount Cotton facility continues to evolve, with more recent renovations to the pit and spectator areas. A new timing system incorporates a visual display, which will supplement the usual informative commentary.

Entry forms and supplementary regulations are available from the HRCC (Qld) website, www.hrcc.org.au.
