Trydel CAMS Victorian Hill Climb Championship third round
When: 23-24 March
Where: Mt Leura Camperdown

The third round of the Trydel CAMS Victorian Hill Climb Championship takes place at the Ballarat Light Car Club’s Mount Leura Camperdown after the two thrilling previous rounds at the famous Rob Roy Hill Climb and Bryant Park.

Hayward 09 pilot Mike Barker was victorious in the opening round in January before Brett Hayward himself set the scorching time of 50.86s seconds to take out the second round in style. 

The Championship is currently heating up with very little separating the top few drivers. Barker, Hayward, Michael Bishop and 2018 champion Garry Martin will all be looking to take top spot in the competition after a big weekend in Mount Leura. 

Entry to the hill climb is free for spectators on both days of competition. The first day of action begins at 1:30pm on Saturday afternoon before starting again at 9:30am on Sunday morning.
