AutObarn Gympie Noosa Hillclimb Results 25th & 26th July 2015.

This Hillclimb was once again proudly sponsored by the AutObarn store at Gympie. Thanks must also go to the organizing committee of the Noosa Beach Classic Car Club for a well organized event.

There were quite a few incidents over the 2 days with 2 cars having major damage on Saturday and another 3 cars having more damage on Sunday, but the best thing was that all drivers were not hurt and all cars can be fixed.

With 4 runs on Saturday and 4 on Sunday the entrants had 8 official runs over the weekend this was another extremely well organized event, congratulations must go to the Noosa Beach Classic Car Club for a great event.

Michael von-Rapard in his extremely quick Dallara won the event outright with a time of 52.44 sec. Well done Michael & Harold.
