TSA & SR Automotive Hillclimb Series Mt Cotton – Round 3 (18th & 19th April 2015)

This was the third round for the Hillclimb season for 2015, 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 both Saturday and Sunday was warm and humid. All the 75 competitors had a total of 10 official runs over the 2 days this was due to a very well run event, the organizes need to be congratulated well done MGCCQ and hard working committee.

Saturday had only one major issue, an accident involving Paul Van Wijk in his Zip GP kart hitting the nuts and then flying over the nuts into the retaining fence. Paul suffered 3 broken ribs and a gash to his leg but Paul was well enough to come to the trophy presentations on Sunday afternoon. Hope you get well soon Paul.
