This was the first round for the Hillclimb season for 2015. This year the series is proudly sponsored by TSA (Trenching Systems Australia) and SR Automotive (Stewart Reid Automotive).

This was a 2 day event starting at 11.30 Am on Saturday and finishing on Sunday afternoon. The weather for Saturday was extremely hot and humid, all the competitors that attacked the track, with only a few mishaps over the day. There were a large number of spectators all eager to watch the 87 competitors that had entered this event. One of the cars that had an issue on the first run was Michael Von-Rappard, he broke the diff as he started and this put the car out of contention for outright times and the top six challenge, this was very disappointing as both Michael & Harold put on a great battle for the faster cars. We hope to see them both back for the 2nd round.
