Like previous editions, the event will be run over four days, with unofficial practice to take place on the Thursday, official practice on the Friday and the two competition days on Saturday and Sunday.
Competitors will have up to seven official timed attempts to post their fastest run with the driver boasting the best time of the weekend to be crowned champion for 2021.
This year’s championship will also feature the first-ever Junior Championship category, which is open to drivers aged between 14-18-years-old as of 27 November.
While the outright hill climb winner itself will be recognised on their single fastest attempt, the junior category will be run as a regularity trial, meaning the best five runs will count towards a competitor’s total score.
Entry fees for outright competitors start from $310, while the Junior Championship fee is $120 per entry. All monies will be refunded should the event be cancelled.
