Supporting the 2010 Gold Coast Show in the rotary hillclimb racing car

Supporting the 2010 Gold Coast Show in the rotary hillclimb racing car.

We had a phone call from the Gold Coast Show organizers a few weeks ago, asking if we would like to have our Rotary Hillclimb Racing Car on display.

Each year at the show there is an exhibition of all forms of motorsport, the idea behind the exhibition is to promote road safety by showing people all different forms of motorsport, and how easy it is to compete in motorsport. This hopefully will make people join car clubs and take illegal street racing off the roads and onto race tracks where it belongs.

TIGHE CAMS HILLCLIMB, ROUND 3, 7th & 8th August 2010.

The third round of the Tighe Cams series for 2010 was another 2 day event. The 99 entered competitors were able to get three runs in from 12 o’clock on Saturday afternoon and another four runs on Sunday plus the top six shootout. Saturday and Sunday were ideal winter days just perfect for hill climbing with the majority of the cars keeping on the track with no major problems.

There were a few records broken over the weekend, one of them was Michael Collins in his Subaru WRX. Michael’s time was 42.35 sec this is the fastest sedan ever to run around the Mt Cotton track, well done Michael how much quicker can you go!

Noosa Hillclimb Results 17th & 18th July 2010

Noosa Hillclimb 17th & 18th July 2010.

This Hillclimb was organised by the MG Car Club of Queensland and the Noosa Beach Classic Car Club’s. It was sponsored by the autObarn stores at Gympie and Nambour. So thanks go to the two car clubs and autObarn for a very well organised event and well promoted.

The hillclimb was a 2 day event with 116 cars entered, due to the well run event and great timing the competitors were able to get three runs on Saturday afternoon and another four on Sunday. Saturday was ideal for hillclimbing and the majority of the cars stayed on the track. Sunday was also ideal for hillclimbing a number of competitors had “offs'” including Warwick in the rotary hillclimb racing car, but not too much damage was sustained.

There were only 3 Rotary Hillclimb Racing Cars entered in this Hillclimb and they all did extremely well with the 2 Mazda Rx7’s of Scott Trenoweth and Ken Luxton running in the improved production 2001 & over Class and Warwick Hutchinson in the open wheeler special running in Formula Libre 1301 & over Class.
