Knox Mountain Hill Climb 1969 - From deep in the archives and Brian Elliott's 3/4" U-matic collection comes a piece of motor-sports history. Almost all of the 1969 Knox Mountain Hill Climb in Kelowna, BC. Possibly originally shown on Wide World of Sports. Look for a Chaparral, a Brabham BT16, early BMW 2002, Mini Coopers and more.
Please forgive the rough quality, given it's more than 40 years old, its not bad.

Knox Mountain Hill Climb 2011 - Yarko Petriw FF1600 Record Breaking run
This was my second run on day two of the amazing 2011 Knox Mountain
Hillclimb. The car is a Swift DB1 FF1600 (formula ford). Very proud to
finish 1st in class, 3rd overall out of 83 competitors and to break the
class record which has stood since the mid 90's. (by over a second!).
There's definitely more time in the car (as evidenced by my missed shift in
turn 6 for starters) and we look forward to correcting mistakes and trying
to best our times again next year.
This was my first time competing in this event and we will certainly be
back for more. The Knox Mountain Hillclimb is the oldest paved hillclimb in
North America having just finished it's 54th year of competition. It takes
place every Victoria Day long weekend in Kelowna BC Canada.

Knox Mountain HillClimb 2014 - King of the Hill - Yarko Petriw
Yarko Petriw wins the 2014 Knox Mountain HillClimb in the Petrel Data
Systems Swift DB1 Formula Ford. His nearest competitor, Michael Marich, was
just .367 seconds behind in the same car, taking second place. Yarko's time
of 1:51.710 was just .07 seconds behind the FF1600 class record he set back
in 2012. With variable weather conditions experienced throughout the
weekend, Yarko pushed hard the moment the sun came out to take advantage of
the grip the warming road surface afforded. A slight miscalculation in fuel
load caused a slight dip in power down the straight between turns 6 and 7,
which thankfully only cost a slight bit of time. This was the Petrel Data
Team's third time competing at Knox Mountain race, and they look forward to
returning once again in 2015 to defend their new title.
