South Australian based hill climb competitors can still enter the Motorsport Australia SCCSA South Australian Hillclimb Championship with places available on the entry list.
The state hill climb championship event will be held at the popular Collingrove venue later this month with competitors to get multiple runs over two days in an attempt to claim the state title.
Entries for the event remain open until 4pm ACST on Wednesday 2 September and competitors must be quick so they don’t miss out on one of the Sporting Car Club of South Australia’s premier events for the year.
Headlining the field of 60 drivers already entered into the hill climb is national star David Mahon, who enters the event having won the club’s previous hill climb in July.
Club representative Melissa Rees was looking forward to what would be an exciting event and was hopeful more people would enter.
“We are planning an action packed weekend and with a number of title contenders unable to make the event, anyone is capable of winning ,” Rees said.
“Not only do we have some big names like David Mahon attending, but there are also quite a few families confirmed too like the Pfeiffers, Chaplains, Fergusons and the Fosters.
“The event will also have the Top 12 shootout again which has been very popular with competitors in the past so all in all, Collingrove is looking fabulous with a lot of work recently conducted to ensure it is a great weekend.”
The club has implemented a number of measures to meet COVID requirements with a cap on people allowed to take part, and all pit crew, drivers and spectators needing to register before attending.
Competitors will have access to a private practice on the Friday before competition begins on Saturday from 9.30am and ends with the Top 12 Shootout on Sunday afternoon.
The Motorsport Australia SCCSA South Australian Hillclimb Championship takes place at Collingrove on 11-13 September.
