Noosa Historic Hillclimb 13th & 14th November 2010

Noosa Hillclimb Results 13th & 14th November 2010.

It was great weekend at Noosa for the running of the 13th annual Noosa Historic Hillclimb on the 13th & 14th November 2010. The weather was very hot it was a nice change from the wet week-ends that we have had leading up to this event and it was ideal for some fast times on the 1.5 Km track. There were 148 competitors competing this year and all ready to attack the track. The rotary hillclimb racing cars of Warwick Hutchinson and Lou Szekely finished first outright and 121st outright for the weekend.

The Historic Racing Car Club of Queensland and the Noosa Beach Classic Car Club must be congratulated as this was the 13th year that this event has been run and from a competitors view point it was the best event yet. With 5 runs on Saturday and another 4 runs on Sunday this was the most runs ever over the history of this event. To add to the milestone the first run on Saturday was that all cars running in the actual official order this was also a first for this event.

Hillclimb Results Round 5 – Mt Cotton 2010.

TIGHE CAMS HILLCLIMB, ROUND 5, 30th & 31st October 2010.

Round 5 of the Tighe Cams Series for 2010 had 103 entered competitors. Unlike the last few Hillclimb’s the great weather allowed the competitors to get a good three runs on Saturday afternoon and another dry three on Sunday plus the top six shootout.

There were 4 Rotary Hillclimb Racing Cars entered in this round of the series, Simon Witt (RX7 – 12A T), Darren Duffield (RPV01- 13B T), Cameron Hurman (RX7 – 13B T) and Warwick Hutchinson (RPV02 – 13B T).

Simon Witt in his RX7 – 12A Turbo was running after a short break during this time Simon has rebuilt the engine and was running data logging in his car. Simon’s data showed that he was pulling 1.3 g around the Mt Cotton track, the data also shows speed oil pressure and throttle position as well as a lot more. It was the first time that Simon has used the data logging so it will be good to see how this information helps with getting the car sorted. Simon finished this round 5th in class and 43rd outright.
